Now that you mentioned, it seems there actually are, but they're not what I thought they meant. I meant "leader of a sui juris church" but it's actually just a title given to important Latin rite bishops: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primate_(bishop)
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

May the Blessed Light shine Forth

You mentioned it.

And there aren't as that picture depicts recent Crete council, where there weren't any Catholic primates. And a good part of the bishops is easily recognizable.

I recognised many of them as Orthodox bishops, but I thought two of them were Patriarchs Gregory (Melkite) and Bechara (Maronite).

The last one would have different hat (like Alexandrian pope).
Anyway, despite wathing these faces everyday, I can't recognise most of them.
But maybe it's because I generally have problems to remember (most of) faces and it sometimes leads to stupid and/or funny situations...:laugh:

This "icon" washed up on the beach recently on the California coast near Fort Ross, found by one of the curators who is not Orthodox, but friends with local parishes and the Calistoga monastery.  Rather bizarre how it is reproducing a section of St Peter the Aleut's Wiki from a Mac.

“Steel isn't strong, boy, flesh is stronger! That is strength, boy! That is power! What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?  Contemplate this on the tree of woe.” - Elder Thulsa Doom of the Mountain of Power

Mencius said, “Instruction makes use of many techniques. When I do not deign to instruct someone, that too is a form of instruction.”
