May your mediation here and the holy images surrounding you provide assurance of the many ways God reaches out to those in need.

Located at the end of the Colonnade just outside the Church.

The Chapel’s centerpiece recalls the words of Isaiah 53:4-5, “It was our infirmities that he bore, our sufferings that he endured . . . by his stripes we were healed.

The Crucifixion Scene

Christ our Savior took all things on him- self so that the entire human experience would be redeemed.

Mary, Health of the Sick, as she is some- times venerated, experienced personally that perfect healing is not always possible in this world. Still, as Mother of Our Lord and as Mother of all the Faithful, the sick flock to her seeking her motherly love and intercession.

St. John the Apostle received on Calvary the charge of caring for Jesus’ mother as she entered old age. For this reason, St. John is seen as the patron of caregivers.

St. Mary Magdalene, devoted friend of the Lord even unto death, can be seen as a symbol of constancy, and constancy in friendship can be very important to those suffering from sickness or pain.
