R.I.P. Justice Scalia (1936-2016)

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away while on vacation in Texas Saturday morning at the age of 79. 

Justice Scalia was the only Traditionalist Catholic on the Court in recent years, and was a regular Latin Mass attendee. One of his sons, Fr. Paul Scalia, says the TLM. 

Justice Scalia was respected by many, even those who didn't agree with him on Constitutional matters. He pretty much was a guaranteed vote against abortion, gay marriage, tyranny, excessive taxation, gun control, and other topics his opponents hate.

His sudden death now fills a void on the Supreme Court that is irreplaceable. It will be very hard to even find a conservative judge these days who upholds the Constitution and interprets the law as it says. 

The Presidential election now has all three branches of government in play.

Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine. Et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen. 

Anima ejus, et animae omnium fidelium defunctorum per misericordiam Dei requiescant in pace. Amen.
