She had prayed to Fr. Damien to intercede for a cure.

Translation for the benefit of non-Catholic visitors to this thread: She had prayed (i.e. asked) Fr. Damien to intercede for a cure. The miracle came from God, not Fr. Damien.

The reporter never gets around to saying when Damien was born and died. Died in the early 1890s, I think.
