      How about communion as fasting, ie, food-deprivation. Rudolph Bell wrote a
      book (about ten years ago, I think) called _Holy Anorexia_, in which he
      determined that the majority of 12th Century female Italian saints were
      anorexic, believing the host by itself was sufficient.

      Could something like this be at work here, too?
