Gerhard: On Change and Ceremony

Building on the previous post from C.S. Lewis on Ceremony:

"A faithful servant of the Church should not have such a desire for change to the point where he wants to change according to his own desires the usual church practice and ceremonies that have been accepted by a holy consensus of the Church. By such changes, all sorts of offenses and divisions can easily arise. Instead, he should above all else, keep the traditional salutary church practices."

Johann Gerhard, Scholia Pietatis III:742
