FOX News Correspondent Rev. Jonathan Morris will accompany the Pope on his United States visit in April, followed immediately by Morris’ appearance in Tulsa. Morris will appear at Cascia Hall’s 750-seat Helmerich Theater on Tuesday, April 22.
His talk will be on “The Real Meaning of Separation of Church and State.” A reception and Silent Auction will coincide with the event, and a book signing will immediately follow. Proceeds benefit Catholic Charities of Tulsa.
Thirty-five year old Morris, an Ohio native, has been on the fast track in the Catholic Church. In addition to a myriad of schooling (he has degrees in classical humanities, philosophy and theology), he also served as theological advisor to Mel Gibson in the making of the feature film “The Passion of the Christ.”
In April 2005, with the illness and death of Pope John Paul II, he began his work as a religious news analyst and commentator for several domestic and international channels including CNN, Sky News and BBC. In November 2005, he provided coverage of the riots in Paris, France. At the same time he initiated an exclusive interview with the Imam of the Grande Mosque of Paris.
He now serves as a regular news contributor for the Fox News Channel, where he offers ethical and moral commentary to regular news items. In less than a year Morris has appeared more than 100 times on various Fox New Channel shows and covered a broad range of topics, giving commentary both from his home base in Rome as well as the studios in New York and Washington, D.C.
In February 2006, he did an exclusive sit-down interview with First Lady Laura Bush.
His first book titled “The Promise” will be published by Harper Collins on April 8.
The event is being produced by ICC Entertainment and is sponsored by Primeaux KIA. Tickets will be available at www.iccea.com and by calling (918) 595-5592.
