Bucharest, August 4, 2011
The Patriarchate explains the pressing need for a more spacious patriarchal cathedral than the one currently used, the social and public benefits that the new complex will provide, and the support the project has already recieved from Romanians both inside and outside the country. The new Cathedral is to be called the "Cathedral for the Nation's Salvation".
The communication concludes by saying, "It is more useful and respectable to build with joy a symbol-space of communion, than to passionately defend a spiritual vacuum!"
