This is awesome! 💪

Actor and producer Mark Wahlberg posted a video to his 18.5 million Instagram followers encouraging them to pray, especially the Rosary.

The actor recently partnered with the world’s most popular Catholic app, Hallow. In the app, he leads each of the mysteries of the Rosary,  the Anima Christi and the Holy Spirit prayer. The app also includes homilies and audio clips from the ‘Father Stu’ movie.

In the video, Wahlberg asks his followers to pray the Rosary with him and to “stay prayed up” daily.

Here’s the video below:
