[quote=gelsbern]Were you unaware of the rules, or did you just learn about them since Sunday? Since you are asking, one would have to assume that you didn’t know the rules, and you probably would be able claim ignorance, however that is for you to decide as you examine your conscience and pray about the issue.
Coffee had never come up before. I usually don’t drink it in the afternoon, so I never had to consider it for the pre-communion fast. On weekends I either attend Mass before my morning coffee, or in the evening.
I think since I read that it’s okay to drink coffee on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, I thought maybe fasting doesn’t include coffee.
Thanks for the replies, and sorry my grammer was bad in the original post. Sometimes just I type too fast…
