Pennsylvania nuns continue court battle against takeover of land for natural gas pipeline

CWN Editor's Note: Since 2017, the Adorers of the Blood of Christ have waged an unsuccessful legal struggle against the eminent-domain takeover of some of their property for a natural gas pipeline.

“In 2018, despite clear and strenuous objections, Transco/Williams seized our farmland in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, constructed a high-volume export pipeline through our property and began transporting high volumes of climate warming fossil fuels,” the Adorers stated recently upon filing a new appeal. “Transco/Williams, a private corporation worth $40B, has forced us to use our land in a way that directly violates not only our religious beliefs about the sacredness of Earth, but also our religious practice of faithfully stewarding our own land for future generations.”

    "...our religious beliefs about the sacredness of Earth". Are we to understand that for these nuns (and presumably for Pope Francis as well) "Mother" Earth is now a sacramental?
