Catholic-Orthodox Communion?

Does anyone know if the Orthodox dignitaries received the Eucharist at Pope Benedict XVI's installation Mass? Attending were Metropolitans and other Orthodox hierarchs from Constantinople, Russia, and elsewhere.

The Church's ecumenical focus in the past several decades sometimes seems to be directed more towards unity with Congregationalists and Unitarians than with the Orthodox, although more recently John Paul II made great overtures to our brethren to the east. Our battle against the Culture of Death and the Dictatorship of Moral Relativism needs worthy allies like the Orthodox.

Ukrainian Orthodox Patriarch Filaret of Kiev offered a memorial Divine Liturgy for Pope John Paul II.
