May he rest In Peace.  He can face our lord knowing he was not silent in defense of the faith.  All I can think of are the words of St Paul: 

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. As to the rest, there is laid up for me a crown of justice, which the Lord the just judge will render to me in that day:

And yet Francis is continually seen as so humble, so merciful, and so charitable.  Mother Teresa, who was canonized by Pope Francis, once said "Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in that action."  Francis could stand to learn a thing or two from Mother Teresa.  He makes a show of hugging the disfigured, washing the feet of prisoners, and doing other nice things for the poor and downtrodden of the world, yet pushes away faithful Catholics.  Performing works of charity is good, but they should generally be done privately.  It's OK to do some things publicly at times, particularly when one's example has the potential to be especially influential, because others do need to see and learn from good examples.  Pope Francis, however, overdoes it.  More importantly, he kneels to kiss the feet of prisoners yet won't genuflect at Mass, he meets with atheists and abortion promoters yet won't give his own cardinals an audience.  I ask of the pope one thing- that he love the Church as one loves a spouse.  That means to proclaim her beauty and her perfections so that others might marvel at them and be drawn to her.  That means to proclaim boldly the truths entrusted to her by God for the salvation of souls.  To do anything but those things is not at all humble, not at all merciful, and not at all charitable.
As someone put it, Francis seems to love everyone except Traditional Catholics.

I saw through his faux 'humility' within days of his election. With all the crises in the Church, 'he was so 'humble' that he took the time to call Argentina to stop his newspaper delivery. Like the vendor didn't know that he wouldn't be coming back. He was so 'humble' that he refused many of the trappings of the Petrine Office, which do not exalt the man, but give honour to his position. He was so deeply 'humble' that he bragged about his humility! In reality, he is probably one of the most prideful men ever to sit on the Throne of Peter!
