“The love of husband and wife is the force that welds society together. Men will take up arms and even sacrifice their lives for the sake of this love. St. Paul would not speak so earnestly about this subject without serious reason; why else would he say, “Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord?” Because when harmony prevails, the children are raised well, the household is kept in order, and neighbors, friends, and relatives praise the result. Great benefits, both of families and states, are thus produced. When it is otherwise, however, everything is thrown into confusion and turned upside-down.”
~St. John Chrysostom, Homily 20 on Ephesians
That’s only true of Protestant Christians. The Orthodox churches were started by Jesus Christ and have a valid Apostolic succession to prove it. Rome and the Orthodox churches are not in full communion with one another and the Pope as I shared above requires no conditions to return to full communion.

The divisions Catholics and Orthodox share is a mutual wound according to Catholic teaching. According to the Balamand Declaration (par. 13): “On each side it is recognized that what Christ has entrusted to his Church - profession of apostolic faith, participation in the same sacraments, above all the one priesthood celebrating the one sacrifice of Christ, the apostolic succession of bishops - cannot be considered the exclusive property of one of our Churches". Rome has been very clear on the fact that the Orthodox churches are part of the Church that Jesus founded.
