CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Christophe Pierre, the apostolic nuncio in the United States, told Catholic News Service that he believes there is a “tendency to withdraw, to be more auto-referential,” in the Church in the US and elsewhere.

While the Church in the United States has “always been very faithful to the Holy Father,” Cardinal Pierre said that “the difficulty in America, like in every country in a world which is globalized but becomes more and more individualistic, (is) to receive the message of the Pope, especially to work together.”

“The Pope feels that if we don’t work together, we are not a church,” he added.
