Photos: Pope blesses relics thought to be St. Peter's in Vatican City

VATICAN CITY, VATICAN - NOVEMBER 24: Pope Francis holds relics of St. Peter the apostle, (fragments of bone) for the veneration of believers (for the first time in nearly 2,000 years), during the end of the Solemnity of Christ the King in St. Peter's square on November 24, 2013 in Vatican City, Vatican. Today's solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, the crowning of the liturgical year, marks the conclusion of the Year of Faith proclaimed earlier by Pope emeritus Benedict XVI in the last year of his reign.
