Full Question

Is it required that the bodily remains or cremains be present at a Catholic funeral?

Answer

No, but it is good for the remains to be at the funeral if possible, because they can then be blessed. If the remains are not present at a funeral Mass, then the Mass that is offered is a memorial Mass.
