      SYNOPSIS:The Ladder, Step 04.31 About Macedonius the Archdeacon. Dogma about the nature of angels, demons and men. The benefit of humiliation. Practical advice about repentance after we fall, because we are men, not demons. A portion of this story: "It is the property of angels,’ he continued, ‘not to fall, and even, as some say, it is quite impossible for them to fall. It is the property of men to fall, and to rise again as often as this may happen. But it is the property of devils, and devils alone, not to rise once they have fallen."
