And right before All Souls' Day! Talk about (as they say in the media) BAD OPTICS!!! To bury the dead is a corporal work of mercy. Only atheists view the body as "cells" to be disposed of or used for profit (abortion). Lord have mercy!!

The Bishop's last name is Jackels.

Jackels = Jackals = Wolves.

Here are St. Paul's words in Acts 20:

28 Take heed to yourselves, and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 29 I know that, after my departure, ravening wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 And of your own selv…More

Pray for this Bishop that he will live up to his office, not to his last name.

In the Catholic Church, we have options! (The video linked here ends with Fr. Paul O’Callaghan saying, “The thing that affects the most is whether we believe in an afterlife or not, not just the ‘afterlife’ of a tree that’s around me and draws on my life.")

Not again! Isn't the whole point of burying the dead that they will be bodily RAISED again by Christ at the end of time? How on earth can people be bodily raised if their bodies are destroyed? If people die invincibly ignorant of the need for their bodies to be preserved, I've no doubt that Our Lord can help them (I'm thinking of Ezekiel and the bones in the desert) - but never before have Roman …More

This is disgraceful, he's a badly informed heretic! This is what comes from creating a false Church, our Traditions need to be respected as there is a reason for every single one! I'm being buried, thank you very much!
Facts Not Lies
I likely will be an 'outlier' in my opinion on management of corporal remains.

The planet and ecology are limited, yet an immense pool.
By living a life, we benefit from this immense resource.
In time, our remains are returned thereto.

Some forms of our remains can return to this pool.

Carbon is the byproduct of incineration. I think it can return easily but not quickly. Remains returned 'as …More

Carbon is the byproduct of incineration. I think it can return easily but not quickly. Remains returned 'as found' can return more readily if allowed access. Putting these remains in a concrete box may reduce or eliminate the rate of return.

To 'frape' them, IMO is going way to the ridiculous. Some middle ground can be just as good if not better, I think.

Or, is that not allowed after 2019?

"both the burning and the body itself release pollutants" -and a chemical process using caustic lye doesn't, amirite? :P idiot. The lulz get better."each cremation 'uses about 30 gallons of fuel,' They do? That must be news since people have been cremating the dead for thousands of years before the invention of petrol. Even today in India, cremations are still done using wooden biers.

While I find this process to be as unseemly as cremation, the possibility of pouring the remains into the ground, rather than the wastewater system would address the objections made by the bishops of New York State a few years ago. I don’t see how this is worse than cremation, except that it doesn’t have millenia of tradition behind it. The biggest problem I see is that the episcopate is being …More

...and COVID has shown just how enthusiastic collaborators Church leaders can be. There's a slow and relentless "movement" to do away with Christian burials in favor of eco-weirdness that will make long term land development incredibly easy. Planting people as fertilizer for trees and bushes. Then, naturally, one day the "memorial forest" will be cut down for low-income housing.

Another example of how in the Bergoglian New False Church so few of the bishops can be taken seriously. His focus should be on fighting in every way he can to ensure the souls of his flock reach eternal salvation....and this excuse for a bishop issues an absurd statement relating to the disposal of their bodies....give me a break!!!

There's only one Church, Tony. Pope Francis is but the current leader of it and if you think he's bad, just wait until you see Pope Tagle. You heard it here first.

The evidence for an canonically invalid resignation of Benedict & a canonically invalid election of Bergoglio is through the roof.
Angelo Santelli
Ultraviolet-- Bergoglio is not the leader of the RC Church. Read your Bellarmine. Even better, read Aquinas on when a pope is not a pope.

that a Catholic Archbishop would teach that it is not only desirable but preferable to turn our bodies into fertilizer at the end of our lives is beyond comprehension.
Will he, as an ardent environmentalist, also promote this technique-- as do the the developers--as a way of living forever? Just pour grandpa into your favorite tree-- and he can live on and on in that tree,

Make no mistake about it-- that is exactly how it is being promoted by the developers of the technique, but the archbishop, I am sure, is unaware of that.
If the Archbishop is aware of the marketing strategies of this new funereal system, what does it say about his belief in the Resurrection?
And then for him to mock and ridicule the custom and tradition of sacred relics, and say that the obtaining of relics is somehow even worse than dissolving a body in lye and chemicals and pouring it into the ground is unacceptable. i am sorry-- but this is awful-- utterly awful
He needs our prayers. But we need some prayers too-- if this is the kind of teaching we are getting
