The Gospel of Mark encourages us to pay attention to what's missing on Easter. For example, consider the Roman Centurion charged with the terrible responsibility of carrying out the order of execution. This soldier knows how to follow orders. But, after beating, mocking, ridiculing and crucifying Jesus the Centurion discovers something is missing. His resolve to serve the Roman chain of command isn't there in the same way. Upon witnessing Jesus death the Centurion, of all people, declares "This was God's son."
