Father Jonathan Morris          

Catholic Priest, Program Director of The Catholic Channel on SiriusXM Satellite Radio

Father Jonathan Morris is a Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of New York. He is program director of The Catholic Channel on SiriusXM satellite radio and a special assistant to Cardinal Timothy Dolan for media and communications.

Father Jonathan is a news contributor for the Fox News Channel, Fox Business Channel, and the Wall Street Journal. He offers analysis of the ethical, social, and religious news stories of the day.

After studying Business Administration at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, Father Jonathan joined the seminary and attained separate degrees in classical humanities, philosophy, and theology. After his ordination in 2002, he served a number of roles, including theological advisor in the making of the feature film "The Passion of the Christ." Father Jonathan graduated with high honors with a licentiate degree in moral theology (ethics) from Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University in Rome, Italy.

In 2008, Father Jonathan published the book "The Promise: God's Purpose and Plan for When Life Hurts." His reason for writing the book was to address one of the most common and profound questions people ask: How can a loving and merciful God allow pain and suffering? Father Jonathan offers perspective on this question and others for those looking for hope and God's love, especially when both seem distant. His second book, "God Wants Your Happy, from self-help to God's help" was be released by HarperCollins in early 2011. His third book, "The Wisdom to Know the Difference" is scheduled for a 2014 release.

In addition to his journalistic work, Father Jonathan serves as parochial vicar of the historic Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in the SoHo district of New York City.
