ACQUISITION BY THE Lourdes Health Foundation

Frank Mason’s Christ Healing the Sick



The religious mural "Christ Healing the Sick" was recently installed at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden, New Jersey. Special thanks to Ruth Cila, the Executive Director of Lourdes Health Foundation, and the Tomayko Group for coordinating this placement. The subject matter of the mural reflects Masons lifelong interest in depicting the Biblical stories of Christ. Painted in Anticoli Corado, Italy in 1973, this painting demonstrates Masons mastery of large scale painting carried out in the spirit of Italian Renaissance artists. The mural hangs in the large entryway to a private lecture hall within the hospital; this location is a suitable showcase for the scale and importance of this mural within Masons oeuvre.

Masons description for this mural can be read here, please visit:
Gloria in Exelsis Deo (book) >

Frank Mason on this painting:

“I chose to present a synthesis of the healing miracles, a scene that would embody the motif common to all the stories: the confidence of those afflicted who sought Him out and the awe of bystanders who marveled at what He was doing.  Here you see two young farmers on their way to market putting down their basket of onions to take in every detail of what is going on. Here, too, are Christ’s followers who look on as a once-blind man, his sight restored, opens his eyes on a world he can now see. A woman reaching out to him will be healed of a twelve-year illness as she touches His robe. Behind her is the woman in blue from Samaria whom Christ met at the well and now proclaims He is the Messiah.  A young woman with leprosy pushes through the crowd, defying strict quarantine and ignoring the man beside her who shrinks away at her approach.  The centurion in the center is the man who later approaches Christ to ask help for a servant afflicted with palsy.  The stories of the healing miracles always overwhelm me. As I read them, I see the lame, the halt, and the blind approaching him with utter faith in His loving kindness.  Their total trust in His power and their poignant hope for a happy solution to their afflictions fill me with wonder.”

The mural was installed at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center on July 22, 2015.
