A BRIEF EXHORTATION SUMMARIZING ALL THAT HAS BEEN SAID AT LENGTH IN THE LADDER OF DIVINE ASCENT

Agios ClimacusAscend, brothers, ascend eagerly, and be resolved in your hearts to ascend and hear him who says: Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of our God, Who makes our feet like hind’s feet, and sets us upon high places, that we might be victors with His song.

Run, I beseech you, with him who said: Let us hasten until we attain to the unity of the Faith and of the knowledge of God, unto a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, Who, when He was baptized in the thirtieth year of His visible age, revealed the thirtieth step in the spiritual ladder; since God is indeed love, to whom be praise, dominion, power, in whom is and was and will be the cause of all goodness throughout endless ages. Amen.
