I am curious about the following…
First, for all the Catholics who care to answer…
Is there anything, anything at all, that you sincerely admire about the Protestant churches?
Conversely, for all the Protestants out there, is there anything you sincerely admire about the Catholic Church?
To get this started, I (as a Protestant) deeply admire the sense of reverence and awe towards God that is evident in the Catholic litanies…on top of which they are gorgeous expressions of prayer that most of the Protestant churches I have encountered don’t seem to include. Also, the idea that great beauty and worship don’t have to be mutually exclusive
