Good morning, Voltpeeps (hmmm.....sounds familiar, lol).
When I was a kid, the Catholic Church had a rule that parishioners had to fast 12 hours, before receiving communion. What a pain in the butt that was. People got around that rule, simply by not receiving communion, when they went to church. Maybe that's why the church got rid of that rule, as it was doing more harm than good. LOL
