After 19 years of monasticism, Saint John of the Ladder (Climaticus) lived in the wilderness for 40 years, practicing silence, fasting, prayer, and penitence. "I do not fast excessively, nor do I give myself over to intense all-night vigil, nor lay upon the ground, but restrain myself, and the Lord soon saved me." At 75 he became hegumen of Sinai Monastery and was asked to write something for the monks. This was "The Ladder of Divine Ascent," a 30-step exercise of soul purification. (Mar 30)

The Church of Hosios David is a late 5th-century church in Thessaloniki, Greece. In Byzantine times, it functioned as the katholikon of the Latomos Monastery, & received a rich mosaic & fresco decoration. The surviving examples are of high artistic quality. Under Ottoman rule, the building was converted into a mosque (probably in the 16th century), until it was reconsecrated as a Greek Orthodox church in 1921, receiving its present name.
