A Silent Backlash?

Fr. Raven asks prayers for three orthodox priests who are getting resistance from their less-than-orthodox superiors.
In all three cases these men are being isolated by what seems to be a silent backlash which knows that it can't openly dispute the current good things that are being promoted but do know that they have the means to at least limit the amount of priests that will actively promote them. [T]hese unknown 'little' men are just quiet 'plodders' getting on with the day to day business of being a priest. They are vulnerable, few will know that they are in difficulties, and they face a very uncertain future palmed off as 'unsuitable' by the use of under hand tactics.
This goes on far more often than most realize.
