No. Rather you're obeying the lords commandment that as often as you do it you remember His death till he comes and if you do not partake you have no life in you

No, it doesn't.
Communion are spiritual exercises in Christianity. Its the breaking of bread and eating of same which signifies the body of Christ and the drinking of wine which signifies blood of Christ.
This is done in remembrance of Christ, his life and death and a spiritual union between Christ and Man.

Fasting on the other hand is the denial of pleasures, such as: food, drinks, sex, and all other form of enjoyment in seeking for God's intervention or as a form of spiritual exercise and growth.

So, in essence, while taking Communion isn't breaking of fast, it still isn't same target as fasting.

should the holy Communion be considered taking meal ? in fact during fasting , it is the right time to take the HOLY communion, because you shouldn't take the holy communion if you have no intension or desired to stop sinning.

Fasting is to denial yourself,it takes many form,it depend on your understanding about it. I use to drink water every morning n whenever I am fasting I still drink my water every morning. Bro,it is a mind setting. The bible does not cage us on spiritual activities. We have different type of fasting...it is just to denial yourself of some certain delicious meal. Taking holy Communion will not spoil ur fast bro.

There are different types of fasting. If you are engaging on dry fasting, no food , no water, however, if you have certain health issues, you should not engage in dry fast

The Jewish ppl believe in hours that is why they have fastings like 6 to 12, 6 to 3 , 6 to 6 and daily fast. It depends on the one you want to engage it, but in all, if u drink water by 5am it doesn't spoil your fasting.
@ op, holy communion doesn't spoil fasting.

I wish I can go back to the days when I was very prayerful and was actively interceeding for ppl. Then, 6 to 6 or even 21 day fasts were nothing to me, even dry fasts- 3 days, 5days.... But these days , I can't remember the last time I fasted even to 12pm. The flesh is so weak now, but I hope this topic will wake me from my slumber.

If you take your holy Communion in the evening, you'll eat right after... it's a good way to break your fast IMO

If you take communion while fasting, look you have broken your fast for the day. Fasting is a way you discipline your flesh. If you take the bread and wine, you get pleasure and sweetness from the taste hence your body also gets the calories no matter how small. Let the time of fasting be for fasting and let communion be for communion. Be dedicated and disciplined, don't deceive yourself.

No. In Is 58, fasting goes beyond abstaining from food

Is 58:6-7

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the Unclad, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

Good answer but I need more elaborate. If the blood is in the flesh, why do we still have the wine among the reverend fathers?
