Father Jonathan Morris, a Catholic priest and 14-year religious commentator on Fox News, said Monday he is leaving the priesthood.

Morris announced his decision during Martha McCallum‘s “The Story,” appearing in a suit and tie rather than his familiar clerical collar.

“I believe I am doing what God is asking of me,” Morris said. “As hard as this decision was, I’m doing exactly what I think I should be doing. I’m following my heart.”

Morris, 46, spent 25 years in the Catholic church, entering the seminary at the age of 21.

McCallum, who struggled to leave off “father” as she addressed Morris, said she had some “tough questions,” asking Morris if parishioners should think he abandoned them.
