Concerning Ritual

A friend of mine, in some notes, apparently cites Jeff W. Childers ("The Crux of the Matter") citing Evelyn Underhill's "Worship":
Ritualism is no substitute for good ritual.
My friend further writes:
Tradition vs Traditionalism. “Tradition is the living faith of the dead. Traditionalism is the dead faith of the living. And, I suppose I should add, it is traditionalism that gives tradition such a bad name.” Jaroslav Pelikan
