Kyrie eleison.

With this schism, the schism with the Eritreans, and the schism between the two main Syriac Orthodox churches in India moving closer to healing, things are looking up.

That said, I think the OO at present is blessed with slightly more unity than the EO communion, where you have the Old Believers, the Old Calendarists, the Macedonians and the Ukrainians out of communion with the main church, and the risk of a massive rift if the issue of Ukrainian autocephaly is not well handled.  So we need to pray this increased unity in the OO communion also appears in the EO communion.
