Here's a good posting on the weblog of a Catholic journalist about the "Fraternal Encounter" of Pope Benedict and the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I. The photos alone are worth a look.
From their joint declaration:
This fraternal encounter which brings us together, Pope Benedict XVI of Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, is God’s work, and in a certain sense his gift. We give thanks to the Author of all that is good, who allows us once again, in prayer and in dialogue, to express the joy we feel as brothers and to renew our commitment to move towards full communion.
