Does it count if you are the only altar server and you only use it when the priest is outside the altar? (Of course, by asking the question in public I look TWICE as holy. :D )

I think the operative qualifier is "in public". ANYTHING I do in public I have to ask myself, "Did I hope someone noticed that?" I can point out the question as one that has to be asked by each Christian of themselves, but only I can answer that question within myself. Does it count? Only YOUR nous knows for sure. :)

Variation on the theme: doing things in public not because you hope to be seen and admired, but because you know you WILL be seen and you fear you may be judged if you don't look pious enough.
