CHICAGO — Actor Mark Wahlberg said he hopes God will forgive him for his turn as a porn star in the 1997 film ‘‘Boogie Nights.’’
Wahlberg told the Chicago Tribune ahead of Friday’s event with Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich that he hopes ‘‘that God is a movie fan and also forgiving’’ because he says he’s made ‘‘some poor choices’’ in the past.
Wahlberg listed ‘‘Boogie Nights’’ when asked if he’s prayed for forgiveness for any of his movies.
‘‘Boogie Nights’’ follows the career of Wahlberg’s character Dirk Diggler through the porn industry in the 1970s and 1980s.
Wahlberg has talked frequently about his Catholic faith and hosted an event honoring Pope Francis during his US visit in 2015. Wahlberg jokingly asked the pope’s forgiveness for the movie ‘‘Ted’’ at that event.
As he has done in the past, Brady advocates eating “real foods” and achieving balance — almost to an extreme.Continue reading »

Q. Are storm doors necessary?
A. Well, yes and no. Yes, in the good old days, front and back doors were pretty leaky and had little weatherstripping and no insulation. So storms were popular, even necessary to slow down heat loss, and perhaps for extra security. There was a social aspect to storms, too, serving to help greet people into your house, and helping them leave graciously, especially keeping a storm from slapping a guest on his backside. Also, in summer a storm door acts as a screen door with proper insert, good for pleasant, breezy living in nice weather, and for ventilation.Continue reading »
