Jn. 20: 19-23
Theologians and faithful alike are saying that the birthday of the Church is on Pentecost Sunday, when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and consequently, the whole Church. Others say that the birth of the Church starts at the Institution of the Eucharist, others say that it is throughout the life of the Lord that the Church was born because the Lord called Simon "Rock" and on this rock, He will build his Church.
