I have seen indications that he thinks internal conversion of heart is part and parcel of caring for the poor. As such, I would hope that he will expect his clergy to humbly do the work and the penance of cleaning house to get rid of “filth” in the Church. I think he will hold his people accountable. It will not be business as usual.
I do think, though, that we should not expect him to pay attention to America and our issues all the time, though. He may be more aware of, and focused on, cleaning up problems in South America, especially where clergy has been Marxist-influenced. He already has experience with that.
I hope you are right about the first part of what you said.
