    meaning of a sentence

    Dear teachers,

    I found this excerpt - "They keep selling and closing properties, while we [traditionalists] are busy building and restoring” - reading the following article: The fate of Catholic Europe: The void within | The Economist.

    I am wondering if the author's point is to say that liberals keep selling and closing the _goods of the church_, such as churches, works of art, etc.

    Is "property" a synonim for "possessions _of the church_"?

    Thank you in advance,

    G.

    Re: meaning of a sentence

    They mean real estate here. The liberal church is closing churches and selling the buildings and land.
