Since my article of last week, which explained how Melbourne’s Archbishop Peter Comensoli hired an ex-Marie Stopes employee for his Professional Standards Unit, the woman in question, Loretta Hoban, has mysteriously updated her LinkedIn profile.
Now, only a few days ago, Ms Hoban was proud to advertise her time with the prestigious Marie Stopes. And why not? MSI slaughters 5.6 million unborn babies worldwide per annum so is no second-rate baby-killing outfit. MSI is obviously very professional about it, too: why else would the Archbishop choose a pro-abortion feminist over the hundreds of faithful Catholics who were qualified for the job – and who have never come within an inch of being complicit with abortion?
Anyway, in the last few days, it would appear that Ms Hoban has had second thoughts and no longer wants the world to know of her ties to Marie Stopes.
Strange that she left details of her work with the equally anti-life CARE International, Red Cross, Oxfam and Asia Foundation. (Hint: anyone trying to cover their tracks when it comes to involvement with abortion might want to replace the term “sexual and reproductive health” with something a little more, well…. prolife?)
Here’s a comparison of Ms Hoban’s CV of last week with the current one:
Far be it from me to suggest that Ms Hoban’s editing spree is due to the article that appeared on this site – but it really is quite the coincidence.
It would be nice to think that in this case, the pen was mightier than the sword, but unfortunately, when it comes to dismembered babies, that just isn’t so. Their blood still cries to heaven, and responsibility for that can’t be simply wiped away with the stroke of a computer key.
Archbishop Comensoli just doesn’t seem to get it. When he’s not disrupting parishes, hand-wringing over government crackdowns or otherwise fiddling in a Masonic key while Rome burns, then he’s adding another feminist ideologue to his cohort of anti-Catholic employees.
This time, he really has outdone himself: he has hired a former top-level Marie Stopes employee to coordinate the Archdiocese’s National Redress Scheme for survivors of priestly sex abuse. That’s right, a woman who has facilitated the deaths of perhaps tens of thousands of tiny children in utero has been hired to advise a Catholic Archdiocese on how to protect children.
The unfortunate woman’s name is Loretta Hoban: she was hired last year and the description of her role comes straight from her LinkedIn profile:
“To provide high level strategic policy advice to create a culture of safety for children in the organisation. This includes policy oversight and advice relating to child safety and the safety of vulnerable people. In addition, the role oversees the operation of the National Redress Scheme for survivors of abuse in the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne.“
So His Grace hired a pro-abortion fembot to ‘create a culture of safety for children.’ Great. Why doesn’t he get Vladimir Putin in to advise on conflict resolution while he’s at it.
Just think – only two years previously, Hoban was teaching Cambodian teenagers how to get on in life by contracepting and aborting their babies. Now she’s ‘safeguarding children.’
This is almost as bad as that former Archbishop of Hobart getting the Family Planning director into his schools to teach little children about ‘relationships’. That woman eventually went on to greater things, too – she joined Tasmanian politics and had abortion legalised through all nine months of pregnancy.
Sometimes, all those aspirations pay off.
Used for performing first trimester abortions.
The cultural imperialists just LOVE handing these out in developing nations.
The appointment of Ms Hoban to the Archdiocesan position took place in April 2021, and made her second-in-charge of the Professional Standards Unit. This means that she is part of the team set up to ‘audit’ parishes for compliance with a plethora of ‘woke’ guidelines. These are ostensibly to protect children from abuse in the parish setting, but are really just a way of monitoring and controlling priests. The Boomers love it.
Of course, as anyone with half a brain knows, most child abuse occurs within the home, but that is no obstacle for the intrepid ideologues who know that there are lucrative opportunities waiting for those who want to infiltrate dioceses and further their immoral agendas under the guise of safeguarding children.
Let’s take a closer look at just how Ms Hoban spent her time before landing her prestigious job with CAM.
Well, for starters, she spent some time with the pro-aborts par excellence, Marie Stopes International, (recently rebranded as Ms Stopes’ penchant for eugenics is now known to the mainstream).
Hoban was employed there in 2015 to kick off a project targeting factory workers in Phnom Penh. Seems that those underprivileged third-world women were not sophisticated enough to understand Western ideas of motherhood so they needed Ms Hoban and her US$4 million to show them how to kill their own offspring. Sounds pretty racist to me.
Then there was that research paper she co-authored in 2016, which investigated what Cambodian career-women thought about contraception. Turns out, they were just as wedded to the idea of traditional motherhood as were the factory workers. Not surprising for a family-oriented Buddhist country like Cambodia. Buddhists hate abortion – or they did until Ms Hoban turned up.
After that, from 2016-17 she was empowering women at the UN-loving Asia Foundation and you can bet she wasn’t there to promote NFP.
Then in 2019, Hoban helped develop that cute little app for CARE, the one which lured Cambodian factory-workers into using more efficient – that is, better at baby-killing – forms of contraception. Here’s what she told pro-abort news outlet, Buzzfeed, about the app:
“Mobile games are increasingly popular in Cambodia, and the app provides a fun and interactive way to learn about a topic that people are often shy to speak about…. [The] stories engage viewers emotionally while providing accurate and easy-to-understand information about contraception.”
How thoughtful of her.
Nihilistic cultural imperialism with your hard-earned tax-dollars (CARE is funded by DFAT – the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.)
Now …. refresh my mind …. what is that mission statement plastered all over the Archdiocesan website? Is it that they have a
“Commitment to the safety of children and young people”
“Safeguarding children and young people is central to our mission”??
Well, excuse my French, but how the hell can someone who thinks it’s good to kill children be trusted to protect them?
And why is this pro-abort feminist being given the authority to lecture priests about preventing abuse? No form of child abuse is more extreme than killing them!
And why – O why? – is this woman being handsomely paid by a Catholic Archdiocese when she obviously has no regard for Catholic teaching?
Remember: thousands of Catholics are out of work because they won’t take the abortion-tainted jab. But this anti-Catholic pro-abort has been brought in to ride the abuse-scandal gravy train.
Comensoli really has gone too far this time. I suggest that if you don’t want your collection money funding a pro-abortion feminist like Loretta Hoban – and she’s not the only one roaming the halls in Melbourne – then let Archbishop Comensoli know your thoughts here: firstname.lastname@example.org

In January, the liberal Vatican news outlet, La Croix International, ran an article with the startling title, “The First Gay Pope”. The story was written by Robert Mickens and carried the subtitle, “The real reasons why Pope Francis is pushing Catholics to become more welcoming and less judgmental of gays and lesbians”.
Mickens justified his title by reminding readers that former US President, Bill Clinton, has been called, “the first black president”, despite the obvious fact that he is not black. Mickens goes onto explain that the title had been applied to Clinton, not because of his many initiatives aimed at helping African-Americans, but because he had been pre-judged – like a Black person would have been – over the immoral incident with Monica Lewinsky.
Thus, according to Mickens, Pope Francis could be called the ‘first gay pope’, not because he has changed the Church’s teaching on homosexuality but, rather, because of his “style” in dealing with homosexuals. As Mickens says, ” … he has — in a real sense — changed everything in terms of attitude and ethos, just by his own personal approach to gay people.” (Emphasis added)
The author then goes on to remind readers that when Bergoglio made the rhetorical question, “Who am I to judge?”, he was speaking of the case of a gay cleric, contrasting the example of the ordained sodomite with that of a “gay lobby” which is said to be one of the factions present within the Vatican. That cleric, Monsignor Battista Ricca is a good example of Bergoglio’s policy of loving the sinner and, well, kind of tolerating the sin.
Mickens ends with the veiled suggestion that this gay-friendly pope may one day be succeeded by an openly gay one, while also referencing the alleged behaviour of at least a couple of twentieth-century popes:
The United States’ “first Black president” was eventually succeeded in the White House by a real African-American. The Church, on the other hand, has been led at times — even in relatively recent history — by popes who would surely be considered homosexuals by today’s understanding of the term. But none of them ever dared to say the things the “first gay pope” has been saying these past several years. He still has a way’s to go, but many LGBTQ+ Catholics are ready to accompany him on the journey.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I would feel uncomfortable calling the pope “gay” – and I don’t even particularly like this pope. (Mickens is something of a fan – if not of Francis personally, then at least of his liberalism). Remember the fuss Paul VI made when he was accused of being a sodomite by a gay Freemason? He asked the entire Church of Italy for a day of prayer and reparation.
By the way, the kind of thing Mickens retweets and shares on his Twitter feed is shown below.
If I were Pope and were also a Catholic, I would be most offended if a liberal from La Croix wrote an article calling me gay. But that’s probably just the abundance of my heart speaking: ” … and a rigid man out of the rigid treasure bringeth forth that which is rigid….” (with apologies to St Luke)
Readers have no doubt heard about an incident that occurred recently in Perth, when a police officer interrupted Mass to check the parishioners’ mask compliance. One local newspaper described how, in response to a tipoff from a member of the public, police raided the church during Mass to check if there was anyone on the premises without a mask.
What is noteworthy about this incident from our perspective is the response by Archbishop Costelloe, a prelate who is no stranger to the pages of this site (see also here). His initial press release reads:
Now, apart from that bit about “collaborating with the government”, this almost sounds like what a bishop should be about: “condemning in the strongest possible terms this impingement upon the free practice of the Catholic faith” and likewise condemning the “disruption of the Celebration of the Eucharist for any reason”.
Of course, a priest must never interrupt a Mass once it has begun – unless he is a Cardinal with an incoming call from a cranky pontiff. Then disrupting the Mass is A-OK.
One could almost believe that a fragment of Costelloe’s spine survived the consecration process. (Catholic folklore suggests that a priest’s spine is removed on the day he is made Bishop.)
However – and you just knew there was going to be a ‘however’ – this rather strongly worded (and frankly, CATHOLIC) statement was quickly followed by a more politically-sensitive one. Thus:
As you can see, the condemnation “in the strongest possible terms” has been reframed as being something merely “regrettable.” That’s like a Category Five cyclone being downgraded to a low pressure system. Thus in Perth at least, a police raid on a Catholic church during Mass is …. barely an inconvenience.
It’s bad enough when the Pope spouts his heretical nonsense to the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics, but it is even worse when he misrepresents Christ’s teaching to those of other faiths: in this case, to Mohammedans.
“Fraternity is the anchor of salvation for humanity’, opined Bergoglio in his speech for the second International Day of Freemasonry Human Fraternity.
Christians might ask where the Blessed Trinity fits into this equation? Rightly so, for the Trinity is noticeably absent. Again.
One is tempted to think that Bergoglio hates Muslims. He certainly does not love them enough to explain to them the truth: that salvation is not found outside the Catholic Church and that Mohameddans have rejected that Church’s foundation, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Pope’s recorded speech was first played in Dubai at the UAE’s EXPO 2020 for Freemason Fraternity Day. the EXPO began last October and runs to the end of March this year and has as its themes what amount to the Sustainable Development Goals. So there is nothing remotely Catholic here or for that matter, not even much that is Islamic.
During the six months of the EXPO’s operation, ten weekly themes are being presented and they include the topics being promoted by the WEF and other globalist entities; for example the “Tolerance and Inclusivity” week features presentations on digital employment and AI; the health and wellness week looks at digital medicine and health technologies; the Global Goals week is run in conjunction with the UN and includes the SDGs proper – global business, sustainability, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution are all covered.
None of this is really surprising except for the presence of a pavilion run by the Holy See. (Actually, given the Abu-Dhabi statement, it’s not that surprising.)
The Vatican is being touted as the “world’s smallest sovereign state with global influence”. It’s tagline is “Forging ever-stronger relationship with all faiths”. According to the Holy See listing on the EXPO’s website, attendees are invited to:
* Hear its message highlighting the need to sustain inter-religious and diplomatic dialogue
* Recognise its creed of peace and harmony, underpinning the values of tolerance and coexistence
* Understand its mission to break down the walls that separate ethnic groups and nations
(Here’s an idea: maybe Archbishop Roche could visit the display to learn how to use ‘diplomatic dialogue’ when dealing with traditional Catholics. He could take home a swag-bag of ‘tolerance and coexistence’ as a little memento.)
Now, in the interests of fair reporting, it must be admitted that the Holy See pavilion ran an event for Christmas which did actually mention Jesus Christ, and did actually include prayer. This was held on Christmas Day and was entitled, Prayer Service for Humanity. It included the story of the nativity recounted by a priest, as well as aa jazzed-up version of Silent Night but seemed overall to be fairly joyless event. I guess that’s what happens when people have no faith.
One of the comments under the Pope’s talk on the Rome Reports Youtube channel gives an indication of the calibre of Catholics this pontiff is attracting to the Church. See if you can make sense of it.
“I WANT TO THANK U DAD FRANCIS THE HOLY FATHER POPE FRANCIS-MY CEO-BOSS-SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP FOR EMBARKING ON THE ETHICAL PRINCIPLES OF HUMANITY. THANK YOU FOR BEIGN THE FATHER TO THE UNIVERSE, A DAD THAT WAS ALWAYS THE DAD FIGURE IN MY LIFE. I LOVE U DAD FRANCIS
“THANKS FOR U JOINT COLLABORATION IN ESTABLISHING A HOUSE REGISTERED TO #5ISLANDS NATION MONARCHY FORMAT OF GOVERNANCE, NASSAU THROUGH TO SAN SALVADOR-PRIVATE-PERSONAL PROPERTIES AND ESTATES MONARCHY FORMAT OF GOVERNANCE.”
Maybe it was composed by a Bergoglio bot. Or maybe was from from Massimo Fagglioli. Either way, it is gibberish, which is probably going to be this pope’s legacy. That and destroying what was left of the human element of the Church.
The entire text of the video can be read here, and another little snippet appears below.
“Now is the fitting time to journey together: believers and all people of good will, together. This is a good day to extend a hand, to celebrate our unity in diversity – unity, not uniformity, unity in diversity – in order to say to the communities and societies in which we live that the time of Freemasonry fraternity has arrived.“
“This is not a time for forgetfulness”, the pope concludes. And I agree.
Memento mori, Bergoglio. Because at the hour of death, you want Christ to be the anchor of your salvation, whereas good ol’ ‘fraternity’ will be a weight that drags you to hell.
Published in italian at el tiempo as “The two assassination attempts on Saint John Bosco by a Freemason group”
03/02/22: John Bosco, or Giovanni Melchiorre Bosco in Italian, is known today as Don Bosco . He was a 19th century priest, writer, and educator who founded the Salesian Family congregation.
Much is said about the work of this priest with the poorest young people. The subject always bothered him and he tried to help them with what he could. Although Don Bosco was a good person, the Freemasons hated him and wanted to kill him . In fact, they tried to do it twice. So it happened. The Freemasons had a secular view of education and proposed that schools should be secular and free of any religious value.
Precisely, these ideas generated a conflict with the Salesian sectors for their way of imparting their beliefs in schools .
Don Bosco considered that evangelization was done through the school. In fact, the Salesians wanted to convert the indigenous people and train them under their religion. For this, a missionary and educational project was carried out where they visited different schools, parishes, hospitals and orphanages.
On June 1, 1980, an article called ‘Bollettino Salesiano ‘, by the Salesian Family, was published. In it, they relate how the assassination attempts against Don Bosco were, under the title ‘Purpose: to get rid of our Don Bosco’. The article commemorates almost 100 years since the assassination attempts against the priest. According to the ‘Bollettino Salesiano’, at the end of June 1880, a former student of Don Bosco, the young Alessandro Dasso, asked to speak with him.
“ His eyes were anguished ”, recalled the publication.
He indicated that “ Don Bosco received him with his usual kindness ”, but faced with the “growing agitation” of the young man, the founder of the Salesian Family told him: “What do you want from me? Speaks! You know that Don Bosco loves you”. The young Dasso knelt down, began to cry and told Don Bosco the truth .
He admitted that he was affiliated with the Freemasons, who had condemned the priest to death. “Twelve men had been drawn; twelve individuals had to succeed with that order to carry out the sentence”, reads the Bollettino Salesiano.
Also, he confessed that he was the first one they commanded, but that he did not want to kill him. At the end of his confession, the young man threw the weapon he had hidden on the floor and quickly left for his house.
Days later, Alessandro Dasso tried to commit suicide by throwing himself into the river, but was rescued by some policemen. Don Bosco helped him escape from Italy, and he lived in hiding until the day he died.
Months later, in December 1880, a 25-year-old man visited the priest. Don Bosco admitted that his gaze gave him mistrust, as his eyes had a ‘sinister’ gleam. In the article they comment that the young man had a small six-shot revolver hidden, but without realizing it, his gun slipped out of his pocket and fell on the sofa.
“Don Bosco, without him realizing it, deftly placed his hand on it and slowly put it in his pocket”, recounted the ‘Bollettino Salesiano’.
Some time passed and the young man realized that he did not have the gun in his pocket and was surprised. The priest, who had the weapon, asked him: “What are you looking for, Lord?”
The young man told him that he had something in his pocket but he did not know where it was.
“ Don Bosco, quickly approaching the door and bringing his left hand to the handle to be ready to open it, pointed his gun at it and without getting angry said: ‘This is the tool you were looking for, isn’t it?’ Seeing this, the scoundrel was stunned ,” the article recalled.
The text also tells that the young man tried to take the revolver from him, but Don Bosco did not allow it and threw him out of the place. Finally, the boy had to leave with his companions, who were waiting for him outside in the car.
Don Bosco died on January 31, 1888 at the age of 72. Some time later, on June 2, 1929, exactly 39 years later, he was proclaimed blessed. On April 1, 1934, he was canonized by Pope Pius XI.
