Perhaps God was punishing the Byzantines for their heresy and schism, particularly in rejecting the Union of Florence. In fact, perhaps the fall of the Byzantine Empire in general was God's punishment for the Byzantine Church's schism from the Christ's Church. Any thoughts about this?

Well, the last Divine Liturgy (never finished) in the Great Church was a union Liturgy in full union with Rome.

Really? Do you have any citation for that? Not necessarily questioning your claim, just wanting to find out more info.

I had been under the impression that the Union ended almost as soon as the Greek Bishops returned to the Byzantine Empire.
