At his father’s funeral Mass, Reverend Paul Scalia delivered a moving homily for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died last week at the age of 79.
Rev. Scalia spoke on his father’s “deep Catholic faith.”
“In the past week, many have recounted what dad did for them. But here, today, we recount what God did for dad; how He blessed him,” Rev. Scalia said.
He added, “God blessed dad with a deep Catholic faith: The conviction that Christ’s presence and power continue in the world today through His body, the Church. He loved the clarity and coherence of the church’s teachings. He treasured the church’s ceremonies, especially the beauty of her ancient worship; the power of her sacraments as the means of salvation.”
