Patriarch Daniel attends Parliament solemn session in honour of Romania’s National Day

His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel of the Romanian Orthodox Church attended the solemn sitting of the Parliament dedicated to the National Day of Romania on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 24, 2021.

The meeting, chaired by Senate Vice President Alina Gorghiu, began with the singing of the National Anthem. The presidents of the two legislative chambers, as well as representatives of the parliamentary groups, held speeches.

The guests included deputies and senators, ministers, representatives of religious denominations, members of the diplomatic corps and other personalities.

December 1 was adopted as a National Day in 1990 and is the main event in the history of Romania when the Great Assembly at Alba-Iulia adopted a resolution certifying the Union of all Romanians in Transylvania, Banat, Crișana and Maramureș with Romania.

The Union Law was subsequently ratified on December 11, 1918, by a decree of King Ferdinand, being voted by the Assembly of Deputies in the meeting of December 29, 1919.
