Recently, the Vatican banned the scattering of human ashes, in response to an “unstoppable” increase in cremation. Only cemeteries or other “sacred” places are deemed acceptable.
Are worms, dirt and rot more “holy” than the air, sea and home of a loved one? And doesn’t the “miracle” of creation encompass the totality of nature? Also curious; all that is deemed “sacred” appears to ascend, rather than descend in Christian doctrine.
Why not let ashes flow, blow, lodge and levitate freely on planet Earth?
Never miss a local story.
