Annual Archdiocesan Mass of Remembrance....more
Associate Justice Antonin Gregory Scalia
May He Rest in Peace
“We are gathered here because of one man, a man known personally to many of us, known only by reputation to many more; a man loved by many, scorned by others; a man known for great controversy and for great compassion.”
After a theatrical pause, he added: “That man, of course, is Jesus of Nazareth.”
Thus the Reverend Paul Scalia, son of Justice Antonin Scalia, began the homily at his father’s funeral. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was laid to rest on February 20, 2016 following a Mass of Christian burial at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. We join millions of Americans and others around the world who respected him as a Catholic man of God, a husband, a father of nine, and Supreme Court Justice.
Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin G. Scalia died February 13, 2016, having served on the Supreme Court from 1986 until his death. Justice Scalia was a brilliant and unequivocal defender of the Constitution of the United States of America, of religious liberty, traditional marriage and of the dignity of human life, in all its stages and conditions. His jurisprudence will long be regarded among the finest in upholding the Constitution and Christian values in the United States.
May Justice Antonin Scalia rest in peace and may his family find comfort in the many prayers and kindnesses offered on the Justice’s behalf and his family.
