Surgeoner invites Dunstan to his mission. Dunstan accepts, and there learns how Joel was changed by his encounter with Mrs. Dempster. Moved by the woman's unconditional love - he had planned to rape her, but did not have to because she wanted to alleviate his suffering - he changed his life and now dedicates it to the homeless. Dunstan recognizes this event as Mary Dempster’s third miracle, which is the final one required for official recognition as a saint.
