I think most of us would consider this story as beautiful now: davidbruceblog.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/in-death-still-holding-hands/
But it seems there was a time where Catholics buried Protestants separately. I assume Protestants practiced the same thing.
Though, the Catholic Church has a hierarchy that likely had a say on this sort of practice. What is the history of Catholic opinions on separating the graves of Protestants, Jews, others?
I also saw in a movie that a Priest did not want to bury a boy somewhere because he committed suicide. I don’t know the history or truth to this story, but again; was separation of certain people in graves common practice? If so, what were the reasons and why has it changed?
