My Name is Charlene: The Story of a Special Little Girl is the story of Charlene Richard, the "Little Cajun Saint" from Richard, Louisiana.
From the Charlene Richard Foundation:
Charlene was born January 13, 1947. After being diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukemia, she died on August 11, 1959, at the age of 12. During her confinement in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Lafayette, LA, Charlene would offer her prayers and suffering to God each day for the benefit of others.
"She was a faith-filled little girl", said Fr Joseph Brennan, a priest for the Diocese of Lafayette, LA, who was serving as hospital chaplain and ministered to Charlene during her final days. "I see Charlene as a witness for people of all ages to the power of resignation and acceptance of God's will", said Fr Brennan. "She wasn't different in any way except that when the crisis came in her life - and it came very early - she accepted it with faith and trust and love."
In his estate, Fr. Brennan left the copyright and proceeds of this book to Crossroads Catholic Bookstore, which now operates as Crossroads Collective, a social enterprise of Catholic Charities of Acadiana. All proceeds of Crossroads Collective, including the purchase of this book, benefit those in Acadiana who suffer from homelessness, poverty, and hunger. For more information, visit www.

A poignant and powerful spiritual memoir about how the lives of the saints changed the life of a modern woman.
