"Cremation and the Catholic Church"

Reprinted with permission from the Department of Catholic Cemeteries – Diocese of Sacramento

Burial of the Body is the Norm: The Catholic Church, in keeping with our belief in the resurrection of the body, has always seen traditional burial or entombment as the normal manner of reposing the body of a deceased member of the faithful as they await that day when they will rise in glory with the Lord. This ancient custom remains the norm.

Cremation Permitted if done with Respect for Christian Belief: In the past, the Church prohibited cremation because it was so often associated with a denial of the resurrection of the body. In 1963, the Church ended this prohibition. It still, however, "earnestly recommends the pious custom of burying the bodies of the dead be observed; nevertheless, the Church does not prohibit cremation unless it was chosen for reasons contrary to Christian doctrine." (1983 Code of Canon Law, canon 1176,§3)

Cremation Follows the Funeral Liturgy: Thus, when cremation is chosen for worthy reasons, the Church respects that decision. However, cremation is to take place only after the funeral liturgy. The funeral liturgy specifically calls for the presence of the body as a sign of our belief in its sacred dignity: "This is the body once washed in baptism, anointed with the oil of salvation and fed with the bread of life." (Order of Christian Funerals) Families are encouraged to contact their parish prior to finalizing arrangements with the funeral home to ensure that the body of the deceased is given the proper respect at the funeral liturgy in accordance with the rites of the Church. (If, the body has already been cremated prior to making arrangements for the funeral rites, a pastor can obtain special permission from the Bishop's Office for the cremated remains to be present at the funeral liturgy.)

Cremated Remains to be Treated with Reverence: The Catholic Church teaches that cremated remains are to be treated with the same dignity and reverence due a non-cremated body. They are to be contained in a worthy vessel and buried or entombed. Cremated remains are not to be scattered in the air, on the water or on the ground. Nor are they to be divided up among relatives or friends, or stored at home.

At all Times – Reverence for the body as the temple of the Holy Spirit should guide all decisions.
