    Is cremation allowed?

    • FrAndrew Carrozza says:

      Hello, Melissa. Yes, the church now permits cremation. There was a time when it was forbidden because those who were doing it figured that by cremating the person their body could not rise from the dead on the Last Day. Since this is no longer the case, cremation may be chosen. The ashes, however, must be buried just as a body would be, either in a grave or in a niche in a columbarium. They may not be scattered, kept on the mantle, divided up, or placed in jewelry. (Some people have been doing that.)

    Carlo Acutis is NOT incorrupt! They put a silicon mask over his face when his body was being displayed. I’m not sure why you felt the need to be deceptive about it all.

    • Thank you for your comment; however, I don’t know what made you think I said he was incorrupt. I said his body was found in a well-preserved state, but that the examiners did not state he was incorrupt, as with modern embalming techniques it is not uncommon for a body to be “largely incorrupt” even after fourteen years. Listen again to my homily and you will hear that I said that. Thanks!

      Hi Bianca, while I agree that the homily was unclear on this matter, almost to the point of being misleading, I do not care for your tone in this comment. Please show some respect for the Father!
