5. SOUNDBITE (English) Rev. Paul Scalia, Son of Justice Antonin Scalia:
"We do not mourn as those who have no hope, but in confidence we commend Antonin Scalia to the mercy of God. God blessed dad, as is well know, with a love for his country. God blessed him with a desire to be the country's good servant because he was God's first."
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was remembered Saturday as a man who loved God, country and family at a funeral Mass capping two days of mourning for a jurist who left a long and sometimes provocative legacy on the nation.
Scalia's son Paul _ a Catholic priest _ led the service and mixed humor with reverence for the conservative icon and father of nine who died unexpectedly last weekend.
Scalia's sons and sons-in-law served as pallbearers, carrying his flag-draped casket up the steps of the basilica.
The service was a traditional Catholic funeral Mass filled with pageantry, celebrity and a little bit of humor. It was simple, with no formal eulogy, in keeping with the justice's philosophy that funerals should not be dominated by effusive praise.
Justice Clarence Thomas read a passage from the New Testament's Book of Romans.
The family departed for a private burial at an undisclosed site immediately after the Mass. A memorial service for Scalia has been set for March 1 at a Washington hotel.
