Tony Hendra was saved by Father Joe, not just once, but many, many times. From the first teenage indiscretion that saw him brought before the worldly-wise monk with jug-ears and plates for feet, through the years of drink, drug-taking, a failed marriage, materialism, and the loss of his shaky faith, there was always kind, patient Father Joe waiting, ready to dispense words of wisdom. Tony Hendra tells us how he went to America and found great success, but after twenty-five years he saw himself teetering on the edge of a terrifying abyss. An edge that only Father Joe could pull him back from.
