“Iconographic tradition has theologically interpreted the manger and the swaddling cloths in terms of the theology of the Fathers. The child stiffly wrapped in bandages is seen as prefiguring the hour of his death: from the outset, he is the sacrificial victim, as we shall see more closely when we examine the reference to the first-born. The manger, then, was seen as a kind of altar.”
— Pope Benedict XVI (2012)

The Supreme Court & Traditional Liturgy
published 22 July 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

239 Antonin Scalia Paul Priest T MAY COME as a surprise to some that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia attends the Traditional Latin Mass. (Examples of other public figures who attend the EF include Clarence Thomas, Andrew Napolitano, and Patrick J. Buchanan.) For the record, I’m a big fan of Scalia.

Justice Scalia’s son is a Catholic priest: Rev. Paul Scalia. He recently assisted at the ordination of FSSP priests by Bishop James D. Conley.

BEAUTIFUL IMAGES from the ordination are available here:

In my opinion, Fr. Paul Scalia’s face resembles that of his father (Justice Antonin Scalia) … but I could be completely wrong about this.
