Jesuit Communications presents another work by Fr. Santos Mena, SJ.
After GENERATION J, a book of meditations for vocation discernment, now
comes ONLY A FOOL: A GUIDE ON DANGEROUS DRUGS FOR ADOLESCENTS.

This booklet is the fruit of countless group sessions that Fr. Mena has
conducted over the years through his role as Counselor at Xavier
School.   Written in a conversational, easy-to-understand way, the book
presents the drugs used in the scene today, their short- and long-term
effects on one's mental and emotional faculties, and most importantly,
their effects on one's future and personal relationships.  The author
hopes to prevent the adolescent (the age when drugs are most likely to
be tried) from even smoking his first marijuana, knowing that this first
step could open the door to a ruined future.

ONLY A FOOL can be used most effectively in the classroon to educate our
adolescents on the dangers of starting on drugs.  It can also be helpful
to parents as a guide to what their children are exposed to in today's
society.  With this booklet, it is hoped that when adolescents are
tempted, pressured, or presented with the opportunity of trying that
marijuana stick or taking in that pill, their knowledge of what it can
do to them will lead them to say NO.

ONLY A FOOL is now available at Jesuit Communications, Sonolux Bldg.;
Jesuit Music Ministry, LST; National Bookstore; Campus Ministry Office,
Rockwell and Loyola campuses; and selected parishes and religious
bookstores.

Retail price is at P60.00.  Discounts may be availed of  for bulk
orders.  For inquiries, please call Cathy Cardoz at 426-5971.
