In this part of the interview, Father Pat describes how he got on in prison, with other inmates and the authorities. He describes “circuit therapy”, where prisoners are flown all over the prison system, away from press and family and the practice of “Black Boxing”. He tells how he worked the system in order to get his vestments and the other necessities for saying the mass. And he describes how, when all else is taken away, religion is the last resort of the prisoner.
