The choice of cremation is a very personal decision that requires a conception of death which is closer to today's society than the classic inhumation.
If this is the expressed wish , with care and attention we will ensure that this ultimate wish is respected and we will carry it out any and everywhere.
The Cremation Ritual
Today cremation is also accepted by the Roman Catholic Church, provided that the ashes inside an urn are kept in a Cemetery . Whilst the choice of dispersion in nature, of keeping the urn in the house as if it were a decorative object, a painting or a jewelry box is not yet part of the Roman Catholic code of canon law
Cremation is an ancient rite that has its roots mostly in eastern countries. In the West, however, inhumation or burial in the ground, has remained the most widely used burial method for many centuries.
Today, cremation is accepted in that it respects the body of the deceased in the same way as burial.
