The King who dies...

The death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus -- especially the Ascension, since it is the final affirmation of the hands-off policy implicit in the other two -- proclaim that no meddling, divine or human, spiritual or material, can save the world.  Its only salvation is in the mystery of the King who dies, rises, and disappears, and who asks us simply to trust his promise that, in him, we have the kingdom already.
