Whats the difference between Catholics and Moravians?
- cristoiglesiaLv 71 decade agoFavorite Answer
Although Moravian services are liturgical they do not focus on the real presence of Christ. They are more bibliocentric rather than Cristocentric like Catholic Mass. Moravians have love feasts and Catholics do not. Brass music is common in the Moravian Church but not in the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church is the oldest and the original Christian Church. The Moravian Church is the oldest of the Protestant churches.
The similarities are that Moravians do believe in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist but do not define it like the Catholic Church and the Lutheran Church. They also believe in and practice apostolic succession although their orders are not considered valid. God bless!
