Doubt it's a Catholic cemetery it since the Schiavo family are Lutherans.
My father-in-law had a business partner named Shiavo in his first business. They were Italian Catholics. It's not that common a name, and I bet that they were relatives of this murderer.
Anyone know if it will be in a Catholic cemetery as required by the Catholic Faith [to be in consecrated ground]?
A Catholic cemetery is not a "required by the Catholic Faith"
Terri will also be denied the Mass of the Resurrection...another slap at her parents and Catholics.
She will have a funeral mass, but her body won't be there.
He would not allow daily Communion.
She couldn't swallow, it might have killed her early.
I am having a hard time understanding why the Shindlers are not given the respect to bury their daughter with all the Rites of the Catholic Church.
People sometimes don't realize the funeral mass is not a sacrament, but a celebration. And she can have one, body or not.
I am sure they would rather have a Mass of Resurrection, but that is not possible without a body.
That is not correct. I have been to such a mass without the body.
Better yet, why not let the parents have a Catholic service, blessing of the body and then he can have his cremation?
Not a bad idea. But I think the animosity and distrust is too great.
It had to have been. Catholics are only allowed to be married in a Catholic church, even in mixed marriages.
This isn't true. To be married in the Catholic church, they must be a priest in attendance, along with certain ceremonies, that must be performed. But these can be integrated into another ceremony at another church.
