Eastern Catholic Churches

The Eastern Catholic Churches are autonomous, self-governing particular churches in full communion with the Bishop of Rome, the Pope. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Catholic_Churches for the included churches. There's overlap with Syriac Churches, but not all Syriac Churches are Eastern Catholic (and vice versa).
