What's the enneagram? QUESTION from Kevin McCarthy October 27, 2000 Greetings John-Paul
Can you enlighten us on the enneagram? Is it helpful to spiritual growth? Our diocesan newspaper has been running ads for enneagram retreats and seminars and has published . Our parish bulletin recently included an insert promoting an Introduction to the Enneagram seminar.
Thanks . . . Kevin
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, O.L.S.M. on December 17, 2000 Dear Mr. McCarthy:
I am sorry to hear that your diocese and parish have faltered on the Catholic faith and have involved themselves in new age occultism. The Enneagram is an evil device.
I have written on that before and gave some references that give an analysis of this evil device. Here are some of those links to previous answered questions on the Enneagram:
