One of my favorite bloggers, Fr. Z, is conducting a poll about how long the Eucharistic Fast should be. Please go over there and vote.
I remember as a child, feeling nauseous from hunger because we couldn't eat before receiving Communion. I thought it was five hours before, but maybe it was from midnight. Anyway, since I go to 7:00 AM Mass, it really doesn't matter to me, now. Many people don't eat breakfast, anyway. Besides, my friends and I go out for breakfast, after Mass. So I don't have a horse in this race.
