Apparently, it wasn’t bad enough that the Vatican ll Church massacred the Holy Mass; desecrated the altars, rails, statutes and most everything holy in the church; dethroned saints and committed many other be-deviled acts…now they even mess with God’s creation, the human body, by inseminating cremation to replace the prohibition always taught against it by the Catholic Church.
Worse of all, the Vatican ll Church’s defiance against the true Church’s prohibition of cremation, has spilled over, as with other heresies, to certain “Traditional” priests to propagate cremation.
It would be wise for Vatican ll priests and those certain “Traditional” priests, that really are not Traditional priests, to look into the valid reasons cremation was prohibited by the pre-Vatican ll Church and the cause and reasons in support for cremation by the Vatican ll Church.
The true Catholic Church bans cremation because it is the most sacrilegious act toward Christians and God, not simply blaspheming, but physically declaring a disbelief in the resurrection of the body.
On December 8, 1869, the Satan inspired International Congress of Freemasons imposed it as a duty on all its members to do all in their power to wipe out Catholicity from the face of the earth. Cremation was proposed as a suitable means to this end, since it was calculated to gradually undermine the faith of the people in the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
The Catholic Church has always taught against cremation for the following reasons:
1. Each individual is composed of body and soul, made in the image and likeness of God. Both body and soul are essentially united to reflect a particular facet of God.
2. The separation of body and soul is a violence that came as a consequence of original sin. It breaks that planned unity each one of us is called to reflect.
3. When a man dies, his soul goes to Heaven (we hope) and enjoys happiness. However, this happiness is incomplete until his body resurrects and joins his soul.
4. Therefore, the body that dies is very important. It must be resurrected in order to complete the images and likeness of God which that person represents.
5. Hence, we are taught to regard death as a sleep, the dead sleep in Christ (1 Cor. 15:18), for they will rise again. When the body is committed to the earth, symbolically, we recall that it will germinate and spring up: “It is sown in corruption, it shall rise in incorruption” (1 Cor. 15:42)
Acknowledging the dignity of the human body, the temple of the Holy Ghost, we reverently bury the body. Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, on whom we model ourselves, was laid in the tomb and rose again. For these reasons the true Catholic Church is against cremation.
A Bit of History on Cremation
Among the ancient people, the Jews buried their dead. Holy Scripture speaks often of the burial of kings and prophets. That a corpse should be left unburied was a chastisement (Deut. 28:26). Only during times of pestilence were they allowed to burn individual corpses.
Spirago’s Catechism: “Cremation is linked to Paganism and Barbarism”.
St. Augustine denounced cremation as a barbarous practice that pagans used to deny the reality of the resurrection and mock Christianity. Charlemagne forbade the Saxons to cremate corpses.
The 1917 Code of Canon Law, canon 1203, forbids cremation because it could cause scandal, and its introduction was devised and implemented by the Church’s enemies.
The Code makes it unlawful for anyone to order that his own remains or those of another be cremated. It is likewise unlawful to join any society whose object is to spread the practice of cremation. Nor is it allowed for anyone to COOPERATE in the cremation of a body. No Catholic who decides to be cremated can receive the last rites unless he reverses his decision. No one who leaves in his will the order to be cremated can be buried with the rites of the church.
This is how things stood until May 8, 1963 when antipope Paul Vl revoked canon 1203, a revocation no antipope cannot make for LACK of being Catholic. Paul Vl’s innovation is considered by true Catholics to be a concession made to Freemasonry, the religion of the devil, among other Church enemies. Why do true Catholics believe Paul ll’s revocation of canon 1203 was a concession to Freemasons and that he was an antipope? Look at the many photos of him wearing the Ephod, the Masonic vestment that a true Pope would never wear.
Given the numerous condemnations of Masonry by true Catholic popes, antipope Paul Vl is perfectly aware how evil Masonry is. Notwithstanding, he revoked canon 1203 to make concession to his cohorts and allows Catholics to enter the Masonry lodges that have repeatedly been condemned by pope after pope. In essence, he is saying to his so-called sheep: “Do you see that wolf? He’s a good friend, go and keep him company.”
For all these good and Catholic reasons, and especially to retain your last rites, avoid cremation, the evil plan devised by Satan.
Pray the Rosary, wear the Brown Scapular, and pray for those misguided souls being sold on the evilness of cremation.
