Pulitzer Prize winning author Anthony Doerr talks about his new novel, "Cloud Cuckoo Land," and why he says his job as a writer is to reveal our interconnections as people, and as a planet.
Nearly 200 Roman Catholic clerics from around the world began a second week of discussions at the Vatican yesterday. Pope Francis convened the meeting – called a synod – to explore challenges facing Catholic families and clergy. It’s the first time in 35 years a pope has ordered this type of review. Few expect substantive changes in Church rules to come out of the synod. But many Catholics long for a Church more in step with the modern world on contentious issues such as divorce, contraception and same-sex relationships. A discussion of the Vatican synod and the future of the Roman Catholic Church.
