Jim is 67. He has had a heart attack, and has six coronary stents. He takes oral meds for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. On the whole however, he seems to be doing quite OK.
On occasion, Jim is not one hundred percent sure he has fasted for an hour before taking Communion.
Does Jim qualify as an “infirm” person for the purpose of Can $919? Does the fact that he is over sixty qualify him as an “elderly” person?
Should Jim simply quote St Alphonsus (Unless you can swear on seven Bibles that you have committed a mortal sin, you should go to Communion) and take Communion despite his uncertainty regarding his fast?
