Charlene Richard's
Grave Site


Charlene Maire Richard
1947-1959

Charlene Marie Richard  was diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukemia, she died on August 11,1959 at the age of 12.  Charlene would offer all her sufferings and her prayers to God every day for the benefit of others, especially for those that asked her to pray for them. 

The hospital chaplin, Father Joseph Brennan, where Charlene spent her last days said, "I see Charlene as a witness for people of all ages to the power of resignation and acceptance of God's will.  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."


Even today people go to her grave side and ask for her intercession and their prayers are being answered.  Many spiritual and physical healings began to take place and now her cause for beatification, is being co
nsidered.

Prayer to Charlene Richard

Charlene, when you  were only twelve years old, you showed heroic faith, hope and love; dying of lukemia, you joined yourself to Jesus on his Cross and offered your intense pain, for others.  You thereby echoed St. Paul's words to his people in Colossians 1,24: "Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ on behalf of His Body, the Church."

Charlene, I believe you are with God.  Please ask ou Heavenly Father, His only-begotten Son Jesus Christ and the  Holy Spirit to grant e the following favor: (mention the favor sought).

Charlene, thank you for helping me.  May Jesus Christ always be praise.  May Mary, Jesus' Ever Virgin Mother, always be called blessed.


Prayer For Charlene's Beatification


Our Father in Heaven, moved by the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, your Son and our Savior, we lift up our hearts to you and ask that, if it be your will, you grant our request:  May your servant and native of Louisiana, Charlene Marie Richard, be raised to sainthood by the Holy Father, successor of the Apostle St. Peter and visible head of Jesus' Church on earth.
  
 We entrust this prayer to you through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Jesus, under her title by which she is known as the Patroness of Louisiana:  The Immaculate Conception.

Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory be...
