Wahlberg has been very outspoken about his faith of late. On Ash Wednesday, he and Rhea posted selfies with ashes dark upon their brows and recently, Mark made an appeal for more priestly vocations, stating:
“I want my children and future generations to have good priests in their lives just like I had.” He continued, “My Catholic faith is the anchor that supports everything I do in life,” Wahlberg continued, “my daily prayers, I ask for guidance and strength in my vocation, and as a husband and as a father.” Read more:Mark Wahlberg asked God to forgive him for ‘Boogie Nights’
