CWN Editor's Note: Meeting on March 25 with members of the Nigerian community in Rome, Pope Francis warned against “tribal isolation.”

“True, one’s own culture is a gift,” the Pope allowed. “Yet not to close it off, but to give it to offer it.”

“Universality,” the Pope said, repeating: “Universality.”

The persistent deadly conflict in Nigeria, which pits Muslims against Christians, has frequently been described as primarily a tribal conflict.
