Pope Francis holds relics of St. Peter, during closing "Year of Faith" Mass
The Year of Faith came to a close with a Papal Mass in St. Peter's Square. Thousands came out to the Vatican to celebrate, as the Pope highlighted that Christians should always have Christ at the center of their lives.
“This way our thoughts will be Christian thoughts, thoughts of Christ. Our works will be Christian works based on Christ.”
The Pope thanked Benedict XVI, who launched the initiative, as well as the 250 patriarchs, bishops and priests who took part in the closing Mass. Reflecting on Sunday's Gospel, the Pope said Jesus speaks of forgiveness and not condemnation.
