Mark Wahlberg is sharing an important message of faith on Ash Wednesday.
Fans may recognize Wahlberg as an actor, producer and entrepreneur, but some may not realize he’s also a devout Catholic. He spoke about his faith and values during an appearance on “Today.”
“[Faith] it’s everything, it’s afforded me so many things… God didn’t come to save the saints, He came to save the sinners… We want to be better versions of ourselves, and through focusing my faith, it’s allowed me to do that,” Wahlberg told Savannah Guthrie.
While Wahlberg is open about his faith, he doesn’t want to force it on anyone.
“It’s a balance. I don’t wanna jam it down anybody’s throat, but I do not deny my faith. That’s an even bigger sin,” he explained. “You know, it’s not popular in my industry, but, you know, I cannot deny my faith. It’s important for me to share that with people.” Read more…
