    Would you camp-out overnight to get your hands on tickets for the Papal Mass in Philadelphia next weekend?

    One die-hard did just that in Delaware County Wednesday into Thursday.

    Brigette Cuffia set up shop outside St. Denis Church in Havertown about 10 p.m. Wednesday. She came prepared with a pillow, sleeping bag and other necessities.

    "I’m really excited to see the Pope. I think the Pope is the message of hope in the world today, so I want to get as close as possible,” Cuffia told NBC10.
