Pie chart: Eastern Catholics
Perspective: all Eastern Catholics are about 2% of all Catholics. Number 1 is the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (almost four and a half million people), which is sort of like the Russian Orthodox Church hit by a Polish Novus Ordo bus, with just over a quarter, with the Novusized Indian Syro-Malabars second and the Novusized Lebanese Maronites third, each with about another fourth, neither of which is Greek Rite. Most are failed attempts to convert an Eastern church; the exceptions being the Maronites (all converted) and Chaldeans (most converted, leaving the Nestorians).
