Actor Mark Wahlberg had a very special message for his son Michael after completing his confirmation —an extremely important sacrament in the Catholic Church: congratulations on taking your relationship with the Lord into adulthood.
Wahlberg, who has never been shy about his faith, shared a congratulatory message on Instagram.
“Good morning from Europe,” Wahlberg said. “I just got down on my hands and my knees to express my gratitude on a beautiful day. Congratulations to my son Michael for making his confirmation.”
“All the young people out there who are confirmed and taking their relationship with the Lord into their adulthood, what a commitment you guys have made,” he added. “Congratulations to all of you.”

The “Father Stu” star, who is from Boston, closed out his post by also giving thanks after learning that the Celtics had won the Eastern Conference and were headed to the NBA Finals, sharing that “lots of prayers answered”…God Bless you all.”
He also told his followers that he had been “listening to a beautiful prayer” on the Hallow app, which the company describes as a “Catholic Prayer & Meditation App.”
In April, Wahlberg, a proud Catholic, encouraged his 18 million followers to “stay prayed up” and say the Rosary with him, as he mentioned the app, as previously reported by The Daily Wire.
“I’ve been getting a lot of messages from people who have been praying every day and finding peace,” Wahlberg posted on social media. “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,” he added. “You got to stay prayed up. God bless you.”
