Patriarch of All Romania Daniel: Union of Romanians into single national unitary state accomplished after centuries of spiritual, material sacrifices
The Patriarch of All Romania, His Beatitude Daniel, on Tuesday officiated at a Te Deum service at the Patriarchal Cathedral in Bucharest, on the occasion of Romania’s National Day.
In a homily, the Romanian Patriarch noted that «…The union of Romanians in a single national unitary state was accomplished after centuries of suffering, many spiritual and material sacrifices, sacrifices of human lives … this Union was achieved because it was prepared spiritually and sacrificially. And the situation called the end of the First World War was just one of the factors that contributed to this achievement.”
He added that the Church has contributed greatly to the cultivation, preservation and promotion of the consciousness of the unity of the Romanian language, faith and culture.
