What are some differences between Quakers and Catholics?

Of course every Quaker is entitled to their own beliefs and if you ask 10 Friends a religious question, you may very well receive 10 different answers.Catholics revere Mary far greater than MOST Quakers.Catholics believe the Bible is the written word of God and Quakers believe it is simply a tool for inspiration and that one should not spend all day listening to a physical book when you get just go inside of yourself and find God waiting patiently there.Catholics - priest and deacon & Quakers- no clergyCatholics- Baptism, Communion, Confirmation & Quakers- No physical sacrament is required.Catholic Mass- ritual & Quakers- spontaneous, no rehearsed serviceCatholic- The world was created exactly how it says in Genesis & Quakers- SOME believe it was created as it was in Genesis, just the Biblical "day" was not 24 hours but many, many centuries. Still other Friends believe differently.Overall, Catholics are required of many things and must follow a rigid set of beliefs, while Quakers are free to believe what they want on most things.Improved answer:While Catholics may believe the word for word description of creation in Genesis, they are not required to believe it literally. God created the Universe but was free to create it in any way he wished and did not necessarily follow the human description in the Bible.Catholics have seven sacraments, not four.Catholics may not always agree with the Church's teachings but it is better to have moral guidance on how to live our lives rather than everyone doing his/her own thing. That causes pandemonium.
