UK
Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, the retired Archbishop of Westminster, has confirmed that an invitation to Anglican clerics to enter the Catholic Church, similar to the proposal unveiled by the Vatican in October, had been considered as early as the 1990s. The cardinal said that the proposal was sidelined at that time, suggesting that it was regarded as too ambitious. But he disclosed that the idea had the support of the then-prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.

Church has always taught that Catholics cannot be cremated because cremation implicitly denies faith in the resurrection of the body. Cremation has its origins in pagan and seditious practices.The Church has always held that cremation is permissible only in emergency situations like war and disease. Outside of such emergencies, there would seem to be no legitimate reasons for cremation, and certainly no Christian motives for doing so.for over 4,000 years, cremation has been viewed as denying faith in God and resurrection while the 1983 code of canon law and the Catechism have opened the door for an examination of a person’s motives who is requesting cremation, they have provided no guidance on what legitimate motives could possibly exist. In the absence of such guidance, we must rely on the Church’s 2,000 year-old teaching that cremation is permissible only in emergency situations such as war and disease
