On February 15, 2018, the Holy Synod of the Romanian Patriarchate resolved that the Blessed Matrona of Moscow be included in the Calendar of the Romanian Orthodox Church for veneration.

With a blessing of His Holiness Daniel, Patriarch of Romania, the Institute of Orthodox Mission in Bucharest had translated to Romanian and published the divine services and akathistos devoted to the saint. His Beatitude Daniel sent several copies of the Romanian version to His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia with a letter informing him about the glorification of the Blessed Matrona in Romania.

During his visit to Moscow for the centenary of the restoration of Patriarchate in the Russian Orthodox Church on December 4, 2017, Patriarch Daniel celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Convent of the Protecting Veil of the Mother of God in Moscow in which the holy relics of the Blessed Matrona lie.
