Here are some quotes of Catholic theologians on the topic of cremation:

St. John Paul II, encyclical Evangelium Vitae: “The Church, with the help of her Magisterium, has always firmly taught that the ‘inhuman’ (Cic. 1170a) will be able to be replaced by a higher being, but that such a higher being must also be human, so that our humanity might be truly renewed by this union of the human and divine (Cic. 1170a).”

Pope John Paul II, encyclical Humanae Vitae: “The soul has become an instrument of the living God. Hence, the Catholic Church, with the help of her Magisterium, has always firmly taught that the ‘inhuman’ (Cic. 1170a) will be able to be replaced by a higher being, but that such a higher being must also be human, so that our humanity might be truly renewed by this union of the human and divine (Cic. 1170a).” Pope John Paul II, encyclical Amoris Laetitia: “What we may be reminded of is the Church who, in times of crisis, always looks towards her sister, the Church in heaven. This is why she asks this of us who are here, if we are worthy to enter through the same doors, that is, if we are truly ‘cremated’ with Christ, since this will be in a way the ‘sacrament of salvation’ (CCC 1378) for us (Amoris Laetitia, no. 15) .”


Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Humanae Vitae: “It has often been said that it is certain that some form of cremated remains will always exist. But the reality has been denied. According to the Church, the body may only be replaced by a greater body through the power of God,” and “since each person becomes more God-man through the union with the Church, these two persons, in the same way that they are God and man (cf. Eph. 1:11) may be replaced by a third person, which may be called, in a certain sense, a human flesh, such as ourselves and that which we are in communion with.”

St. John Paul II, encyclical Apostolic Exhortation Humanae Vitae: “If we understand properly that in the end it is through Christ, God’s human Son
