What does the Catholic Church say about cremation? – Path Tattoo

The Church’s teaching on cremation is as follows: In a crematorium for people who have died of certain diseases the body is prepared in a “sacred atmosphere,” called “sacred soil”; there is a fire burning within the soil, a mixture of “sacred oils” and “sacred gases.” After the body is collected, the sacred gases are vented into an oven. There are no candles or incense in the funeral ceremony, nor in the crematorium. Cremation is the only method of disposing of such ashes. The Church regards cremation as a good step “for the sick, who want to save their lives by means of the grave, for the aged to gain health in a new climate, and for the living to rid themselves spiritually of all spiritual impurities.” It is good for the dying, but is not, according to the Church, a means of disposing of bodies already buried. But this statement is not very definite, because “sick” is not mentioned in the Instruction, and it must be remembered that the term “sick” could mean persons with a life-threatening ailment, and could refer to some other bodily disease, e.g. leprosy. So what this saying indicates is whether cremation is practiced because of death or on account of physical health, but does not indicate whether the body can only be cremated if there are no objections or not.

This is how cremation was brought into Italy in the 19th century, that is after the great emigration of Jews and others to Israel and the Western countries where the crematorium came into use. In Italy there were few crematories at that time, not only in the region, but even less in the cities or towns, because the people were used to burying their dead in the countryside. Therefore, a crematoria (a kind of funeral home) was needed. When the instruction was received, there were a few places (in Italy a large number of smaller camps) where the priests of various orders and religious orders were already practicing cremation. For a long time the Church never accepted this cremation because, apart from its obvious physical and health benefits, it would have had a practical drawback. Because of time and financial problems, however, it was not until the early 1930th century, when the country was becoming capitalist and capitalism was
