LE PUY-EN-VELAY, FRANCE, August 14, 2016: A priest holds the cross of Jesus Christ followed by thousands of pilgrims and devotees during the procession of the Black Virgin at the cathedral "Notre Dame du Puy" during the Feast of the Assumption on August 14, 2016 in Le Puy-en-Velay, central France. The Cathedral of Notre Dame du Puy is one of the oldest Marian sanctuaries in Europe, to which pilgrims have been coming since the 5th century. The Black Virgin is venerated especially on the 25th March, the Feast of the Annunciation, and on the 15th August, Feast of the Assumption, when her statue is carried in procession, followed and venerated by thousands of people, through the streets of Le Puy en Velay. / AFP PHOTO / PHILIPPE DESMAZES
