NEWS: Pope Francis, Glee, Marriage Equality, Leotards

RoadPope Francis calls 'Extraordinary Synod' on family and marriage: "For Francis, issues of family and marriage are the ones that require deeper interpretation given the signs of the times, and dedicating a synod to the topic suggests he wants to unify church teaching about them. When local church offices around the world make their own decisions about marriage and family—especially about serving communion to divorced and remarried Catholics—the global church as whole becomes divided."

Monteith

Lea Michele, Cory Monteith's real-life "Girlfriend" sings the Adele track "Make You Feel My Love" in a preview of Glee's "Farewell to Finn" episode to air next Thursday.

GleeSaid Murphy: "I locked [the episode] today. It was incredibly difficult to work on. It was very difficult to shoot. I mean, the interesting thing about that show is that those actors and the creators really, really loved Cory. The episode is called 'The Quarterback,' and you know Cory really was that, to that group of people and to me particularly. There was nobody on that crew that did not like Cory."
