WATCH: Hollywood Star Mark Wahlberg Encourages Instagram Followers to Pray the Rosary with Him

Mark Wahlberg has recently been telling his 18 million followers on Instagram to “stay prayed up” and pray the Rosary.

In a video message on Instagram, Wahlberg said, “I’ve been getting a lot of messages from people who have been praying every day and finding peace. And especially sending wonderful messages about doing the Rosary with me on the Hallow app.”

“Let’s do the Rosary together and stay prayed up. You got to stay prayed up. God bless you,” he added.

Hallow is a Catholic prayer and meditation app that launched a partnership with Wahlberg in early April, according to Fox News. It is the most downloaded and used Catholic app in the world.

The website advertises praying “with the reading from the daily Gospel each morning in just 5,10, or 15 minutes” and “fall[ing] asleep with sleep Bible stories from Fr. Mike Schmitz, Jonathan Roumie, or Night Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours,” as well as, “meditate[ing] on scripture with the daily Rosary on your way to work.”

Wahlberg has always been outspoken about his Catholic faith. In a CNN interview with Piers Morgan on TV in 2012, Wahlberg said, “I pray to be a good servant to God, a father, a husband, a son, a friend, a brother and uncle, a good neighbor, a good leader to those who look up to me and a good follower to those that are serving God and doing the right thing.”

Wahlberg acted in the movie “Father Stu,” which was released on April 13th and is out in theaters now. The movie is about the real-life story of an amateur boxer undergoing a degenerative muscle disorder and becoming a Catholic priest.

Mark Wahlberg and Mel Gibson joined Fox News’ Raymond Arroyo in an interview over the movie earlier this month. Wahlberg said, “You know, people have been overwhelmed by the movie. Everybody has some sort of personal connection to it. It drums up something that they’ve experienced in their own life that’s very touching to them.”

“Even the most cynical of people, I was talking to a couple of journalists, and they said, ‘This movie will touch you in some sort of personal way,’” he added.

In 2018, Wahlberg released a prayer schedule that consisted of “a 2:30 a.m. wake up that kicks off with prayer at 2:45 a.m.”
