Peoria celebratory Mass

The Catholic faithful broke into applause immediately after Bishop Daniel Jenky thundered out the words: "Long live the Pope!"

More than 200 laity and about 60 priests gathered at St. Mary's Cathedral on Monday night to celebrate a special Mass of Thanksgiving for Pope Benedict XVI, who officially began his papal reign Sunday.

Outside the cathedral, a yellow and white banner - the official papal colors - flapped in the gusting winds, and the bells tolled as parishioners streamed into the special service.
