Chapter XXV.

A question how is it possible always to observe one and the same measure.

Germanus: How then can we observe this measure without ever breaking it? for sometimes at the ninth hour when the Station fast 1198 is over, brethren come to see us and then we must either for their sakes add something to our fixed and customary portion, or certainly fail in that courtesy which we are told to show to everybody.



On the Statio see the note on the Institutes V. xx.

Next: Chapter XXVI. The answer how we should not exceed the proper measure of food.
