A book to be read

Fr Mario Attard OFM Cap

During this present graced time of Lent a great spiritual classic that is being read, particularly throughout the Orthodox world, is The Ladder of Divine Ascent written by Saint John Climacus.

As Benedict XVI said this book “is a complete treatise of the spiritual life … that … takes place through 30 steps”. In step onethe author says: “The Christian is one who imitates Christ in thought, word and deed, as far as is possible for human beings, believing rightly and blamelessly in the Holy Trinity” (Step 1:4).

Why not sanctifying this special time of preparation for Easter by reading daily from The Ladder of Divine Ascent?
