I don’t know if you realize this, but Mark Wahlberg, who takes his faith very seriously, partnered up with an app called “Hallow.” It’s a Christian prayer and mediation app, and thanks to a change of heart in this country, this new app just beat TikTok, Facebook, and Google to top the charts. Amazing!
Catholic prayer and meditation app Hallow has launched a partnership with actor Mark Wahlberg, who is the biggest name to date to provide exclusive content to the Chicago-based startup.
Hallow, the most downloaded and used Catholic app in the world, has released a new series of resources in conjunction with the actor’s newest film, “Father Stu,” which hits theaters Wednesday. Wahlberg put his own money into producing the movie that is based on the true story of Fr. Stuart Long, a boxer-turned-priest. co-starring Mel Gibson.
Although Wahlberg is a devout Catholic and has not shied away from sharing his faith, “Father Stu” is his first religious project. So when the founders of Hallow – who are big fans of Wahlberg – heard about it, they reached out to him to find out how they could help folks discover the movie while more broadly helping people build a habit of daily prayer.
Western Journal reported that in a world more given to reciting Rihanna than the rosary, something very unexpected took place last week.
On Ash Wednesday, the Catholic app Hallow placed third on the list of top free iPhone applications on the Apple store, surpassing Google, Netflix, Spotify, Instagram, and TikTok, according to The Daily Wire.
By Saturday, the app had slipped but was still running strong in fourth place behind TikTok, the Chinese shopping site Temu and the video editing software Capcut.
On Sunday morning, it was still in the top 20.
Hallow was launched in 2018 by Alex Jones (not the Alex Jones of Infowars fame), Alessandro DiSanto, and Erich Kerekes, all of whom are graduates of the University of Notre Dame.

“God is doing something pretty incredible,” Jones said Thursday, according to The Daily Wire.
“We never thought in a million years that we might have this many people from all around the world gathered together in prayer,” he said.
“To be top 5 in the App Store is truly unbelievable. Praise be to God!” he said.
Hallow posted on Facebook that it was “feeling truly blessed.”
“From all of us at Hallow, thank you for beginning your Lenten journey with us!” the post said.
There is definitely a shift happening in this country. We’ve gotten so far from God, and things have turned so evil and perverted, that it was only a matter of time before Americans came back home to the lord.
