Actor Mark Wahlberg remains devoutly Catholic despite the faith’s unpopularity in Hollywood.
During a recent appearance on the Today Show, he discussed his commitment to his beliefs and approach to sharing them.
On Ash Wednesday, he appeared wearing ashes in the shape of a cross, symbolizing his participation in Lent.
Wahlberg explained Lent’s fasting as detaching from hindering habits for spiritual growth, mentioning his plan to abstain from meat and have one meal from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday.
He values sharing his faith while respecting others’ beliefs, setting an inspiring example in the entertainment industry.
