Note 3. Saint Augustine was in the habit of dining upon Saturday as upon Sunday; but being puzzled with the different practices then prevailing (for they had begun to fast at Rome on Saturday), consulted Saint Ambrose on the subject. Now at Milan they did not fast on Saturday, and the answer of the Milan saint was this: Quando hic sum, non jejuno Sabbato; quando Romæ sum, jejuno Sabbato (When I am here, I do not fast on Saturday; when at Rome, I do fast on Saturday).Epistle xxxvi. to Casulanus.
