Excerpt from The Chaplain, Vol. 19: April, 1962

It [ritual] is a pattern imposed on the mere ?ux of our feelings by reason and will, which renders pleas ure less fugitive and griefs more endurable, which hands over to the power of wise custom the task (to which the individual and his moods are so inadequate) of being festive or sober, gay or reverent, when we choose to be, and not at the bidding of chance.

It may be that the freedom for which our time searches so frantically will only be recovered when we have learned once more the mystery of discipline: the schooling of mind and body by habit.

But whatever the truth of this and whatever our Slant on psychology, we continue to be Creatures of habit. We do things better which we do often. Even so dangerous a beast as the automobile becomes reason ably docile under our habituated skill and we manage to answer mil lions of letters and handle thousands Of personal contacts with relative ease because we can fall back on the cliché and the stereotype, Ref erence is made to our telephone conversation of June We shall look forward to the pleasure of your company. I was highly honored. Buzz, buzz, buzz!
