Burial or Cremation?

Leave a comment

One of the Church’s corporal works of mercy is burying the dead. The body is worthy of a dignified final resting place. So, how are we supposed to treat the bodies of the deceased? Is cremation allowed by the Church in all circumstances, or just in special circumstances? If we bury bodies, are Catholic Christians bound to be buried in consecrated ground, i.e. cemeteries? What about some people’s wishes that their remains be scattered in the mountains or at sea? Join Jerry and Debbie for this most informative discussion – along with our guest, Dr. Carol Houghton, a canon lawyer for the Diocese of Harrisburg, PA – on Wednesday.
