"The cremated remains should be buried in a grave or entombed in a mausoleum or columbarium. The practice of scattering cremated remains on the sea, from the air, or on the ground, or keeping cremated remains in the home of a relative or friend of the deceased are NOT the reverent disposition that the Church requires."
Remember, in our Catholic teaching, we have the 7 Corporal Works of Mercy. One of them is "To bury the dead." Scattering Aunt Edna to the wind is not a corporal work of mercy.
Translation: If the body is cremated, hopefully after the funeral Mass, then the cremated remains should still be either
1) buried in the ground or
2) placed in a mausoleum
|NOT GOOD! It is a Corporal Work of Mercy to BURY the dead|
