- Cremation to be promoted in Latin Church
[Indian Express, 10 Nov 2007]
KOLLAM: The cremation of the mortal remains of believers will be promoted in the Latin Church under the Kollam Diocese.
Replying to a query in this regard during the news conference convened to announce the Marian pilgrimage at Pullichira, Kollam Bishop Stanley Roman said that the Pope had sanctioned both burial and cremation for the believers. In view of the scarcity of land, especially on the coastal belt, cremation will be allowed, the Bishop said. However, cremation will be allowed on the request in this regard from the people concerned, he said.
