Respect for the occasion

A while back J. Mark Bertrand noticed a quotation from C.S. Lewis's Preface to Paradise Lost:
The modern habit of doing ceremonial things unceremoniously is no proof of humility; rather it proves the worshiper's inability to forget himself in the rite, and his readiness to spoil for everyone else the proper place of ritual.
