As many of you know, Hagia Sophia was turned into a mosque. This has been a slap in the face to Orthodox Christians and especially for the Greek Orthodox but even for us Copts I'm sure. The name bearer, Saint Sophia was a Coptic saint. Let us remember and pray for the state of the Christians in these regions and pray for us to remember that unity more than anything is needed at this time.
"The Church of Agia Sophia is not named after an Egyptian saint, but after the Holy Wisdom of God, and it was not constructed by Emperor Constantine, but by Emperor Justinian in the 6th century."

Father, you can take it from here.
I definitely agree with the OP. So many Christians in that region have been pushed out. It's sad to see so many converts from the west to Byzantine Orthodoxy who have no concept of the current situation of Christians in places like Turkey. Very well said from both of you!
