    It says:
    -
    Catholics are forbidden from keeping the ashes of cremated loved ones at home, scattering them, dividing them between family members or turning them into mementoes, the Vatican has ruled.

    Ashes must be stored in a sacred place, such as a cemetery,
    -

    This was announced just before Nov. 2 this year.

    Really? We kept pieces of my brother's bones because they had a green stain and our family follows the belief that these meant our brother was a good person and that it brings good luck to the family members left behind.

    I don't know what this means for those who are already keeping or have already spread their dead ones' ashes somewhere. I guess the Church can't do anything about that.

    As for current and future cremations, I dunno how the church "enforces" it. Do they monitor every Catholic funeral and keep tabs on all ashes?

    Maybe it's the job of the priest who will bless the deceased before cremation to remind the family that keeping bones or ashes is now bawal.

    Cremate, then have my ashes spread over our favorite beach...so every time a wave comes in , they can imagine my face saying "yoooooohooooo, wag nyo ako kamilutaaan!"

    Seriously though, dunno what the exact circumstances were, parang pinapaalis na ng landowner yung mga me nakalibing dun. My uncle thought it best to transfer na lang, since they weren't maintaining the place anyway -- mud everywhere, evidence of street kids messing up the puntods, etc.

    Then i heard my cousins had the same plan, di ko na sigurado whether it's about the "fees" or pinapaalis na rin.

    i also visited a public cemetery in Cebu when i was a kid. We were led to this large water tank, but oddly it was buried in the ground....
    ...turns out that if the relatives didn't pay the dues, they would dig up the graves and dump the remains in that tank. i remember being bitten by an ant there, and thinking that that ant probably had eaten human flesh

    All that said....meh, i think i'll skip burial and just go right ahead with cremation. i would like to think my family would think about me from time to time, but i wouldn't want to trouble them with all that.

    ^^^ this should be:

    Yung nangyari sa lolo ko...dunno what the exact circumstances were, parang pinapaalis na ng landowner yung mga me nakalibing dun. My uncle thought it best to transfer na lang, since they weren't maintaining the place anyway -- mud everywhere, evidence of street kids messing up the puntods, etc.

    Just to add, there are some new gimmicks with burial:

    -- you can be buried with a tree seedling. The tree basically feeds on your remains, which will become your tombstone. Creepy imho.
    -- i read about this guy who worked with marine life to his dying day....his ashes were mixed with cement/fiberglass and made into a reef. They then installed it at the bottom of the ocean as part of an artificial reef. Cool ^_^

    Those are nice bro, but will still release the toxins accumulated in your body into the environment. Cremation also does this.

    I know my family will probably think I'm crazy, but I'm considering the mushroom burial suit:

    FAQs >> Coeio

    The mushrooms chelate your toxins before releasing it into the environment and will be safer.

    Interesting. Wifey and I have decided we would be cremated though. Columbary is cheaper and can accommodate 4 urns.

    Re burial: if you do have a plot of land in a memorial park, can you bury as many relatives there? Me nakita ako, at first look it seems like there are only two people buried there, pero me mga lapida with different names at the sides.
