John Climacus Ladder of Divine Ascent Download PDF

Our God and King is good, ultra-good and all-good (it is best to begin with God in writing to the
servants of God). Of the rational beings created by Him and honoured with the dignity of free-will,
some are His friends, others are His true servants, some are worthless, some are completely estranged
from God, and others, though feeble creatures are equally His opponents. By friends of God, dear and
holy Father,1 we simple people mean, properly speaking, those intellectual and incorporeal beings
which surround God. By true servants of God we mean all those who tirelessly and unremittingly do
and have done His will. By worthless servants we mean those who think of themselves as having been
granted baptism, but have not faithfully kept the vows they made to God. By those estranged from
God and alienated from Him, we mean those who are unbelievers or heretics. Finally, the enemies of
God are those who have not only evaded and rejected the Lord’s commandment themselves, but who
also wage bitter war on those who are fulfilling it.

  1. Each of the classes mentioned above might well have a special treatise devoted to it. But for simple
    folk like us it would not be profitable at this point to enter into such lengthy investigations. Come then,
    in unquestioning obedience let us stretch out our unworthy hand to the true servants of God who
    devoutly compel us and in their faith constrain us by their commands. Let us write this treatise with a
    pen taken from their knowledge and dipped in the ink of humility which is both subdued yet radiant.
    Then let us apply it to the smooth white paper of their hearts, or rather rest it on the tablets of the spirit,
    and let us inscribe the divine words (or rather sow the seeds).2 And let us begin like this.
  2. God belongs to all free beings. He is the life of all, the salvation of all—faithful and unfaithful, just
    and unjust, pious and impious, passionate and dispassionate, monks and seculars, wise and simple,
    healthy and sick, young and old—just as the diffusion of light, the sight of the sun, and the changes of
    the weather are for all alike; ‘for there is no respect of persons with God
