How can this happen as we pray:

"...for the well being of the holy Churches of God and for the unity of all..."

and beseech

"Asking for the unity of the faith and the gift of the Holy Spirit..." ?

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.

Sts. Peter and Paul, pray for us.

God, there is so much spiritual beauty in Orthodoxy. How to deal with this? There are so many problems in the world. And now one more...
May problems for the church be less and not more.
Thanks that there are critical thinkers who are nice and don't accept everything.

The leaders need more loyalty to the Church and real Orthodoxy, more Sophia, and more mutual caring about each others' Churches.

If I talk about this issue, may it be with your assistance and guidance.
