John Haffert

John Mathias Haffert, O. Carm. (23 August 1915 – †31 October 2001) was an author, editor and Roman Catholic figure. He wrote several books, mostly on Roman Catholic themes, co-founded Catholic societies, edited Catholic magazines and lectured on Catholic issues.

Haffert received his high school and college education at Mt. Carmel College, a Carmelite seminary and then began his career as an author and lecturer. Haffert was the co-founder of the Blue Army of Our Lady of Fatima, a Roman Catholic Marian Society which was approved by Pope Pius XII and has about 25 million members worldwide. [John Haffert, 1982 "Dear Bishop, the History of the Blue Army" AMI Press ISBN 0911988424] He was the editor of "Scapular Magazine" which helped enroll one million Americans in the Blue Army of Our Lady of Fatima and pray for the Soviet Union. [Eli Lederhendler, 2006 "Jews, Catholics, and the Burden of History" Oxford University Press ISBN 0195304918 ]

Haffert was a strong advocate of the message of Our Lady of Fatima and he worked with Fatima visionary Sister Lucia dos Santos to develop the "Fatima Pledge" in 1946. This later became the "Blue Army Pledge", in 1948. [On John Haffert's Life http://www.twoheartsdesign.com/jmh_obit.html]
