‘Priest for a day’ Brett Haubrich eulogized for his ‘robust’ faith

In 2015, while fighting a rare brain tumor, then-11-year-old Brett Haubrich was given a wish from the Make-A-Wish foundation, and he wanted to be a “priest for a day.” Brett served the Chrism Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis as part of that wish. Brett died Jan. 10.

In celebrating the sacrament of the anointing of the sick two days before Brett Haubrich died on Jan. 10, Msgr. Patrick Hambrough noted the forceful manner in which Brett responded to the prayer at the anointing of his palms: "May the Lord of love and mercy free you from sin, save you and raise you up."
