10797. Nothing of the honour belonging to any function is vested in the person who performs it. Rather, it is an adjunct and depends on the importance of the affairs he attends to. As an adjunct it is separate from the person and is also removed from him when the function is removed. The honour that can be vested in a person is the honour that goes with wisdom and fear of the Lord.
