Like I have said that Fr Romanides quote "Religion is a neurobilogical illness and Orthodoxy is its cure" still my favorite thing.
Imagine trying to evangilize someone like that. I should write up a mock story around it.
You should see the HOTCA video online with those in a round table meeting being enamored by that quote and in total awe.
Lord have mercy. Are you sure that it is HOTCA and not HOCNA? HOCNA is the one which is enamored with every word that came from Fr. Romanides' throat. Do you have the link to that video?

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
