To Rise With Christ - Instruction on Burial Rites Involving Ashes / Cremated Remains of the Deceased

Recently, the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has issued an Instruction, To Rise With Christ, on the burial rites involving ashes / cremated remains of the deceased. Specifically, To Rise With Christ is addressing practices in society which have grown in popularity in recent years in regard to the care of cremated remains after death: the separation or scattering of ashes, the retaining or display of ashes in one’s home, or the use of ashes in the creation of jewelry. In all of these cases the Instruction reiterates the Church’s firm belief in the respectful care of ashes / cremated remains of the departed, such that “the ashes of the faithful must be laid to rest in a sacred place, that is, in a cemetery or, in certain cases, in a church or an area, which has been set aside for this purpose.”
