Regular meals and solid food or liquid may be taken up to one hour before receiving Holy Communion. Water may be taken at any time; it never breaks the fast. These regulations apply at all times, whether Holy Communion is received at Mass in the morning, afternoon or evening, or at midnight. The elderly and those who are suffering from some illness, as well as those who care for them, may receive the Blessed Eucharist even if within the preceding hour they have consumed something.
