Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev, the chief ecumenical-affairs officer of the Russian Orthodox Church, met with Pope Benedict XVI at Castel Gandolfo on September 29, Catholic Culture informs.

Metropolitan Hilarion had been in Rome for meetings with Vatican officials to discuss relations between the two churches. He is due next in Milan, where he will meet with Cardinal Angelo Scola and attend a concert of sacred music arranged for a festival of Russian culture.
