Holy Smoke


I chanced yesterday to preside at a cremation, following a Requiem Mass. And, yes, on the door of the crematorium…
NO SMOKING!

Interesting - I didn't know cremations had their own ceremony.

Did anyone tell the corpse about the new government regulations??

Pity they don't enforce it then we might return to the Christian custom of burial - which is what the Church prefers, even though she tolerates cremation.
