Based on Fr Pacwa's view that the Enneagram could cause psychological harm to those who embrace it, (Br Moloney's letter in March AD2000), one wonders how long it will be before people who have been subjected to such workshops decide to take legal action against any Catholic diocesan authority around the country promoting this modern 'pop' psychology due to mental trauma and distress, etc.

This same concern goes for all the other New Age and occult spirituality that is being peddled by various Church bodies in Australia.

I would have thought that this concern, even if based chiefly on self interest in order to protect the financial position of their dioceses, would have been foremost in the bishops' minds before permitting any alien spirituality to enter their local Church.
