Mark Wahlberg has a thriving Hollywood career to be proud of.
But in addition to being well-known in the entertainment world and married to a former Victoria Secret model, the star of The Fighter is a devoted Catholic.
In fact, Wahlberg routinely talks about his religious convictions and says he prays first thing in the morning.
Of course, his life wasn’t always glamorous. In reality, he had been walking down a dangerous path. Growing up in Boston in the 1970s and 1980s, Wahlberg experienced a challenging upbringing and participated in multiple racially motivated assaults.
After robbing a convenience store at age 16, he was found guilty of violence and theft. In order to get through his incarceration and guide him toward a better course, Mark decided to concentrate on his faith.
He said, “I had to make the decision individually, and then I had to concentrate on my faith.
And I’ve actually been able to overcome a lot of obstacles because to my faith. also effort. You know, nothing is ever simple, especially when you’re up against it and have a lot working against you. But I wanted to demonstrate to them that I was going to change via my deeds rather than just my words.
Today, Wahlberg is married to a former Victoria Secret model and has four beautiful children. The 51-year-old also has a long number of well-known movies to his name, including Ted, Planet of the Apes (2001), and Transformers.
He credits his trust in God with a large part of his accomplishment. In 2010, he spoke of how he prayed for courage to be a good servant, father, and husband.
The Boston-born actor took the opportunity on Wednesday to post a poignant note to his Facebook page as he exited his neighborhood church.
In the video clip, which was later shared on social media, Wahlberg can be seen exiting the church on Ash Wednesday. The actor had an unexpected reaction when asked about his plans for how he would observe Lent and what he would give up.
People allegedly ask Wahlberg what he’s giving up for Lent every year. For 2023, he is embracing the Christian tradition in a more unorthodox manner.
The Other Guys star emphasized that his intention for the coming year is to accomplish more than less.
“More love, more peace, more acceptance, more caring, and more kindness,” Wahlberg proclaimed. “Have a lovely Lenten season. Godspeed to you all.
