It is the process by which, through heat, the remains of the deceased contained in a wooden coffin are transformed into its basic elements (gas and bone fragments); it is a practice that has remained practically unchanged for millennia which allowed us to believe in ancient cultures that fire was a purifying agent or that the passage of the dead to another world was illuminated or that their return was prevented.
Destination of the ashes
Contrary to what one might think, cremation does not reduce the corpse to ash: the remains are crumbly bone fragments that are shredded to form an ash that is collected inside a hermetically sealed urn that subsequently it will be buried in a cemetery artifact (cinerary, niche, tomb), entrusted to the relatives entitled, dispersed in special cemetery spaces or in nature.
Dispersion is a process that must be foreseen by the municipal regulation of the Municipality in which it is intended to proceed, therefore many municipalities are adapting to the increasingly frequent requests for dispersion. We are thoroughly prepared on the subject and able to manage this task in the best way, accompanying the pained ones in carrying out all the necessary documentation.
The Catholic Church has never condemned cremation, but the anti-religious and anti-Christian ideology that accompanied it. Cremation and burial are both respectful ways of interment of a deceased person’s body, as reiterated by the Episcopal Conference of 23-25 March 2015.
