Actor Mark Wahlberg is opening up more about his turn toward faith in Christ and its impact on his work. In recent years, he’s acknowledged that movies he made earlier in his career did not honor God, but now he’s working to change that.

Wahlberg says his faith played an integral role in his latest project, a new film called Father Stu.

While reading the movie script, Wahlberg, who is a devout Catholic, said he reflected on his own past, the present, and his life’s purpose.

“God has continued to bless me and put me in this situation,” he told Fox News‘ Raymond Arroyo. “Not to continue to grow and work on Mark Wahlberg the person, but to do His work and finally giving me the skills and tools to go out there and articulate the message that He wants me to articulate.”

The biographical movie is based on the life story of boxer-turned-priest Father Stuart Long.
