BONUS - Mark Wahlberg and Mel Gibson: The Stars of
This week Paula is excited to bring you a bonus edition of "Faith & Calling" featuring two titans of the entertainment industry who beyond their shared calling also happen to be men of deep faith.

Mark Wahlburg and Mel Gibson join Paula for a spirited conversation about their latest project, exclusively in theaters this Easter. "Father Stu" is the real-life story of a bad boy boxer who finds renewed purpose in the calling to become a priest, with Gibson and Wahlberg starring as father and son. Hear why Wahlberg was so moved by the story that he broke the cardinal rule of filmmaking by financing the film with his own money. Find out why this passion project is also paving the way for a new genre of movies. It's honest, funny and ultimately uplifting - but it's also gritty and R-rated, intentionally not preaching to the choir like a stereotypical faith-based film and the guys tell Paula why.

Moving to life beyond the screen, both Wahlberg and Gibson share with Paula what their deep faith means to them today - and what each feels called to in this season ahead. And another bonus this week: not only is this a special and extraordinary bonus episode, but for the very first time an episode of "Faith & Calling" is being released in video form too on AccessMore https://www.accessmore.com/pd/The-Paula-Faris-Faith--Calling-Podcast-VIDEO | and Apple https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-paula-faris-faith-calling-podcast-video/id1618348885
