Tertullian, On Prayer, 19

nanSimilarly, too, touching the days of Stations, most think that they must not be present at the sacrificial prayers, on the ground that the Station must be dissolved by reception of the Lord's Body. Does, then, the Eucharist cancel a service devoted to God, or bind it more to God? Will not your Station be more solemn if you have withal stood at God's altar? When the Lord's Body has been received and reserved each point is secured, both the participation of the sacrifice and the discharge of duty. If the Station has received its name from the example of military life - for we withal are God's military - of course no gladness or sadness chanting to the camp abolishes the stations of the soldiers: for gladness will carry out discipline more willingly, sadness more carefully.
