Pope Francis concluded the Year of Faith on Sunday by venerating the bones believed to be St. Peter’s and by calling all people to keep their focus on Christ.

In his homily on Sunday, the feast of Christ the King, Pope Francis said:

“The attitude demanded of us as true believers is that of recognizing and accepting in our lives the centrality of Jesus Christ, in our thoughts, in our words, and in our works.”

To celebration to conclude the Year of Faith, the relics believed to be those of St. Peter were on public display for the first time. Catholic News Service reports that “during the ceremony, the pope — the 265th successor of Peter — held the closed reliquary for several minutes in silent prayer while choirs sang the Nicene Creed in Latin.”
