Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? In Acadia, Ash Wednesday (Mercredi des Cendres) ushered in forty days of penitence, as prescribed by the Church. Fasting, for those between the ages of twenty-one and sixty, was very severe, permitting no more than two ounces of bread in the morning, a good meal at noon and a light snack at night. Meat was prohibited, at first every day of the week, and later only Wednesdays and Fridays.
