station days


Appointed days on which the early Christians fasted until None, between twelve and three o’clock; usually feast days on which the faithful gathered at stated churches for the celebration of Holy Mass. As they remained standing or went in procession to, or around, the church, always on foot, some attribute the name to this fact (Latin – stare, to stand).
