"Francis is too heavy on the mercy and too light on the justice side of things"
Can't have too much of that mercy stuff going on, you know. People might actually come to know God.
James 2:13 For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

(Gone Galt; Not averse to Going Bronson.)
While one is alive — Christ is perfect mercy.
At the moment of one’s death — Christ becomes perfect justice.
