He also praised young people who seek "a relationship with the Lord into their adulthood".

"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. Congratulations to all of you."

According to, confirmation is "a sacrament in which the Holy Ghost is given to those already baptized in order to make them strong and perfect Christians and soldiers of Jesus Christ."

Wahlberg routinely quotes Bible verses and scriptures to his 18.5 million followers.

In April, Walbgerg urged Halle Berry and cast and crew of his Netflix film "Our Man From Jersey" to pray on the set in London, England. "You've got to stay prayed up," he said.

"I'm here on the set, and I've been getting a lot of messages from people who have been praying every day and finding peace. And especially, sending wonderful messages about doing the Rosary with me on the Hallow app. If you haven't yet, go to the Hallow app. Let's do the Rosary together and stay prayed up. You've got to stay prayed up. God bless you."
