Italian cardinal: inappropriate to keep ashes of deceased relative at home [or scatter them to the wind, in the ocean or another body of water]

[As long as cremation is allowed, the Church runs the risk of such profanation of the remains of the deceased – especially acccepted as the norm by its portrayl in the media]

Catholic World News – 11/3/17

Cardinal Giuseppe Betori of Florence deplored the increasingly common practice of keeping the ashes of a cremated relative in the home. Speaking on the feast of All Souls, the Italian cardinal said that the practice is contrary to the “inalienable dignity of the human person.” Cremated remains should be kept in a sacred place such as a cemetery, not scattered, he said.
