a little light reading ...

A couple of books available on free pdf downloads ... good news if you're interested, especially if you have a kindle ...

I went looking for the the first one (Google is a wonderful thing!). It's a classic of Orthodox spirituality, directed at increasing one's holiness of life ... now what Christian wouldn't want to be holier? And only about 125 pages ...

THE LADDER OF DIVINE ASCENT  St. John Climacus  (Translated by Archimandrite Lazarus Moore)

The second I stumbled across by accident in an article about the canonisation of (now) St John Paul II (I do think it's great when online newspaper/magazine articles give hyperlinks to what they're talking about) ... 

The Redemption of the Body and Sacramentality of Marriage

A lot longer at over 330 with footnotes. But of interest if you want to know more about his theology of the body ... and if you decide you don't after a few pages/screens, well at least it didn't cost you anything to find out.
