Communion fast question

Today, about fifteen or twenty minutes before Mass began, I was drinking mineral-enhanced water, and received the Eucharist. Did I fulfill my fasting obligations, and even if I did, does drinking mineral-enhanced water change anything? I am aware that one can drink regular water during the fasting period (at least, that is what I inferred from reading Catholic Answer’s Blog post, “Who Can Receive Communion?”), but what about mineral-enhanced water?

You’re fine.
If you tend to scruples, see your priest for advice.

attention RCIA teams…based on the number of threads on this one issue since the Easrer Vigil, we may want to tighten up next year’s curriculum.


Water is water, it seems to me…
