Scalia’s son, Paul Scalia, will lead the homily for the funeral service. The service will be a funeral mass, not the traditional requiem, according to Jason Calvi of EWTN.

The funeral is at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the largest and one of the grandest Catholic churches in North America, Desert News reported. Pope Francis celebrated mass at the basilica when he visited the United States in September.
