“Sacred music, being a complementary part of the solemn liturgy, participates in the general scope of the liturgy, which is the glory of God and the sanctification and edification of the faithful. It contributes to the decorum and the splendor of the ecclesiastical ceremonies, and since its principal office is to clothe with suitable melody the liturgical text proposed for the understanding of the faithful, its proper aim is to add greater efficacy to the text, in order that through it the faithful may be the more easily moved to devotion and better disposed for the reception of the fruits of grace belonging to the celebration of the most holy mysteries.”
— Pope Saint Pius X

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.
