Catholics across the world are taking part in colourful processions, as they celebrate Corpus Christi. The holy day symbolises their belief in the body and the blood of Jesus Christ, and his Real Presence in the Eucharist.
In the village of Crostwitz – one of the centres of the Sorbian area in Saxony, Germany – locals took part in an annual Sorbian Corpus Christi procession, before attending mass. In southern Germany, lake Staffelsee was scattered with rowing boats as people dressed in traditional Bavarian dress.
Liturgically celebrated on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday, Catholics attend a Holy Mass where there is often a procession of the Blessed Sacrament, usually displayed in a monstrance. The procession is then followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Source

BERLIN — Roman Catholic believers across Germany are celebrating the religious holiday of Corpus Christi with carefully arranged processions through villages and towns, often donning traditional costumes.
In eastern Germany, hundreds of Sorbs, a Slavic minority, participated Thursday in a procession in Crostwitz in the state of Saxony, where little girls dressed in long white and pink dresses and headscarves.
Further south, young Bavarian boys dressed in leather pants, or Lederhosen, as they joined a procession at lake Staffelsee in Seehausen near Murnau.
The processions on Corpus Christi commemorate the biblical transubstantiation of bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. Source
