Fr. Joey Faller confesses on “Probe Profiles”

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

He makes the blind see, the lame walk, the bedridden up and about. He is not the Lord —but this healing priest, Fr. Joey Faller, is almost divine for his thousands-strong followers.

This Wednesday (July 15) on “Probe Profiles,” Cheche Lazaro gets behind his cloak and demystifies the priest, revealing a healer who himself is wounded and humanly weak.

Bringing us where the healer dwells, Lazaro treks the 300-step grotto of Faller’s Kamay ni Hesus in Lucban, Quezon, and engages him in a no-holds-barred exchange about his life as a healing priest, the source of his power, the temptations he has failed to resist and the cross he now bears. Unguarded, Faller talks about the familiar tug-of-war between the desire to remain faithful to his mission and the undying allure of money, lust, and fame.

“Probe Profiles” is replayed Fridays at 3 a.m. and Sundays at 1:30 p.m. on the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC SkyCable channel 27). The episodes may also be viewed for free—in premium quality—on See Cheche Lazaro as she presents Fr. Faller’s confession on her weekly investigative show, “Probe Profiles,” on Wednesday (July 15) after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN.
