Q: Why does a Catholic church resemble a palace and why does a Protestant church resemble a courtroom?

A: Catholic Churches are designed to remind one of Heaven, because the real presence of Jesus Christ is typically reserved in the tabernacle of every Catholic Church the world over, according to the divine authority that Jesus granted (in perpetuity) to the Church, and more specifically, to the Catholic priesthood.

Protestant ministers do not offer sacrifice to God for the people, nor do they have the power to confect the authentic Holy Eucharist, so no real presence of Christ exists in protestant houses of worship.

The surroundings and the decor typically reflect this strikingly different orientation.
