The Rev. Billy Graham became the fourth civilian to lie in honor at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday and was received by President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and other lawmakers.

The Graham family was also in attendance as the casket was brought inside the rotunda. The convocation was delivered by House Chaplain the Rev. Patrick J. Conroy, S.J.

Mr. Trump and leaders on Capitol Hill, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, also delivered remarks.

Known as “America’s pastor,” Mr. Graham’s public addresses were broadcast nationwide from 1947 to 2005. Trying to stay nonpartisan, he served as a personal adviser to every U.S. president from Harry Truman to Barack Obama.
