Repetition Is the Mother of a Great Many Things
#2
Indeed, the notion of repetition and holding to Tradition is something profoundly important,  which is part of why St. Benedict made the Divine Office the sine qua non of his monks daily life.  It's only by longterm repetition and immersion that one sets down roots. Without those roots and everyone being formed in a given tradition there's nothing to pass on, hence the near complete lack of coherence or liturgical culture within the RCC today outside those on the fringes still trying their best to live out some semblance of a traditional liturgical life.
Walk before God in simplicity, and not in subtleties of the mind. Simplicity brings faith; but subtle and intricate speculations bring conceit; and conceit brings withdrawal from God. -Saint Isaac of Syria, Directions on Spiritual Training


"It is impossible in human terms to exaggerate the importance of being in a church or chapel before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. I very seldom repeat what I say. Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity. "Father John Hardon
