I love how Jewish and how Middle Eastern Christianity is

I love how Jewish and how Middle Eastern Christianity is. Though I also love Belloc's line
'The Faith is Europe, and Europe is the faith' 
(this, alas, will seem quaint in twenty years' time). What I don't love is how growing up in a Protestant country makes people feel religion is grey, depressing, half-alive. It is not - and especially not in Romania. 

Religion is mysticism. Romanians know this which is an important reason why Romania is so endlessly fascinating a place in which to live.
