Struck with grief at the loss of a great man, let us pray

Justice Scalia was a great man. His loss is a loss for us all. We grieve with his family and all who loved him. 

In his praise and memory, I share the fitting words of Justice Story:  

He who has been enabled, by the force of his talents and the example of his virtues, to identify his own character with the solid interests and happiness of his country; he who has lived long enough to stamp the impressions of his own mind upon the age, and has left on record lessons of wisdom for the study and improvement of all posterity; he, I say, has attained all that a truly good man aims at, and all that a truly great man should aspire to.

Let us pray:

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
