May Roman Catholics become aware that the Eastern Catholic Divine Liturgies are sacred and holy Masses (Divine Liturgies). It seems to me that the typical Roman Catholic is not knowledgeable or aware of the Eastern Catholic Churches or of their origin, centuries ago, from Orthodoxy.
Even the holy term, The Theotokos, is unfamiliar to many Roman Catholics.
I would like to suggest that Roman Catholic priests, from the pulpit, begin to teach about the UNIVERSALITY of the Catholic Church, how it is comprised of 22 or 23 sacred rites all in communion with Rome and the Roman pontiff.
Then perhaps invite an Eastern Catholic priest to speak to parishioners about Eastern Christianity and tell the faithful who the Theotokos is.
Then I would encourage all priests, Latin and Eastern, to pray for the reuniting of the separated Churches, Orthodox and Catholic, in unholy schism for the past thousand years do to bad decisions by churchmen on both sides. The emphasis should be that Christ and His apostles established ONE CHURCH. not a divided Church.

Eastern Catholics need to finally step-up and make their parishes known within the local Catholic community.
