The funeral for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was held on Saturday at the nation's largest roman catholic church in Washington D.C. Thousands of people gathered to pay their respects. Scalia's son, a catholic priest, led the funeral mass.
"God blessed dad, as is well known, with a love for his country," said Reverend Paul Scalia.
Father Scalia, one of the justices nine children, added humor to the somber ceremony telling a story of the time his father came to church for confession only to learn his son was the priest on duty.
"As he put it later, like heck was I confessing to you. The feeling was mutual," said Reverend Scalia.
