‘Stay Prayed Up’: Mark Wahlberg Leads Prayer During Super Bowl Ad for Catholic App Hallow

One of Hollywood’s leading men took time out to lead a prayer during a Super Bowl ad for the Catholic prayer app Hallow on Sunday night. Alongside Jonathan Roumie, who plays the role of Jesus Christ on the highly successful show The Chosen and is also seen in the ad, Wahlberg focused on a message of thanksgiving and family. “God, we take this moment just to give you thanks,” he says in the ad, as the camera shows people praying in various scenarios, such as the family setting and deployed soldiers. “Join us in prayer this Lent on Hallow,” he concludes. “Stay prayed up.” The message of prayer, family, and thanksgiving starkly contrasted with the other Christian-themed ad that ran during the Super Bowl. Taking the Biblical occurrence of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples, He Gets Us ran an ad showing Christians and others washing the feet of overtly gay men and women at an abortion clinic. While the Christians depicted in the ad also had their shoes off, apparently signifying they, too, had their feet washed, none of the images showed that, and He Gets Us left the viewer to infer it. Jesus washed the feet of friends and enemies. No ego or hate. He humbly loved his neighbors. How can we do the same? pic.twitter.com/kXift42ZG9 — HeGetsUs (@HeGetsUs) February 11, 2024 Instead, many viewers inferred that the ad was seeking to show that Jesus would have been fine with sinners and those living in apostasy should not be judged. The “He Gets Us” commercial might seem harmless to some, but it’s obviously part of a psyop to trick Christians into thinking Jesus is fine with sin & apostasy. It’s the opposite of what our world needs right now. — Ryan Visconti (@ryanvisconti) February 12, 2024 Jesus isn’t just some nice guy. He is God. Washing feet is a sign of discipleship, of following Him. But to follow Him you must deny yourself. If you love Him you will follow His commandments. That’s my Super Bowl ad. pic.twitter.com/LAiPlvcZfa — meta thomist
