Pope Benedict in Constantinople

The Patriarchate of Constantinople has some wonderful pictures up of Pope Benedict and Patriarch Bartholomew in a liturgical context: the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in honour of the Feast of St. Andrew the Apostle.

This is an important visit, it goes without saying. Also available off that site is video of the Patriarchal Divine Liturgy (courtesy of EWTN) and other such items.

It is, however, sorrowful to see the great Byzantine Patriarchate of Constantinople reduced to the small state it has been, knowing once the glory of the Church in this region.
