In earlier times, Catholic cremation was finally accepted, but only if the body were present at the Mass before being cremated. In present times, the Church allows cremation before the last Mass. The urn can be present, but must be approved by a bishop. The Church does have a few stipulations – the ashes must either be buried or put in an urn.

Since this is Christianity.net I used the word "Church" to signify the Vatican, I should be more specific.

You have presented Roman Catholic teaching in a section dedicated to the Orthodox faith exclusively so your response has been moved to the proper section.
