      Orthodox leader meets with Catholic bishops

      The spiritual leader of 200 million-plus Orthodox Christians met with
      Mexican Roman Catholic bishops Wednesday in Mexico City, working to build
      stronger links with the Catholic world ahead of a possible meeting with
      Pope Benedict XVI in November.

      Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew told reporters that he will probably meet
      with the pope at his headquarters in Istanbul, Turkey, at the feast day of
      St. Andrew on Nov. 30.

      Bartholomew's visit is the first ever made by an Orthodox Christian supreme
      leader to Mexico, the nation with the second-largest number of Roman
      Catholics in the world after Brazil.
