However, he attended a Christian high school and wrote his senior thesis at Harvard on the “Mechanics of Catholicism” in Flannery O’Connor. On the topic of faith, Jones said, “I’m a believer in belief. Faith is something that works – it causes people to do things, it has results. It’s an intangible, indefinable, very real thing.
