Any recommended reading to grasp the ecclesiology of the The Byzantine Metropolitan Church sui iuris of Pittsburgh?

I would recommend the out of print The Byzantine-Ruthenian Rite in America: How to kill a Church. Actually, it was never in print but needs to be written.

Seriously, the answer to your question depends on whether the determining factor is:

1. what it is
2. what it wants to be
3. what it should be

I think at the present the three are mutually exclusive.

All three points are of interest.
