March 30 - Saint John Climacus


He was a lawyer with a great future, but he gave it up to become a hermit. The fame of his virtues soon spread and many came to John to ask for advice. When the abbot of a nearby monastery died, the monks asked him to come live in the monastery and become the new abbot. Saint John Climacus created a work called Scala Paradisi or Ladder of Divine Ascent, which is composed of 30 steps of virtue.
