The Vatican has released new guidelines about cremation.
I have already broken all of them.
I kept some of my son's ashes. They are in a small metal canister in my backpack. When I go hiking, I carry that small extra weight and remember.
We held a ceremony and scattered most of his ashes in a river he loved.
Everyone in the family that wanted some took a bit.
We still have the wooden box with what's left sitting at home.
No word on exactly what kind of sin I've committed. It's probably pantheism.
