His Beatitude was enthroned as Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church during a special ceremony held on September 30, 2007.
Several Romanian hierarchs concelebrated at the festive Divine Liturgy, following which a Doxology (Te Deum) was officiated as a token of thanksgiving to God for the bounties poured out upon the Romanian Orthodox Church, the Romanian people, and His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel during the 11 years of patriarchal ministry.
