Both suspicion and fear are both fully justified concerning the temporal reign of Pope Francis:

Is Pope Francis a Modernist?

Pope Francis said:

We need to include the excluded and preach peace. Vatican II, inspired by Pope Paul VI and John, decided to look to the future with a modern spirit and to be open to modern culture. The Council Fathers knew that being open to modern culture meant religious ecumenism and dialogue with non-believers. But afterwards very little was done in that direction. I have the humility and ambition to want to do something."

"To open oneself to modernity is a duty."

If he looks like a modernist, walks like a modernist and talks like a modernist...
