Overview
I hope these words are still sparrow-song, more ragged at the edges, perhaps, but filled with gratitude. This new Song of the Sparrow tries to sing on like an aging bird whose voice is less insistent, less knowing, a bit intermittent, but still reaching for a full-throated song. - From the Introduction Thirty years after his groundbreaking and popular Song of the Sparrow, Murray Bodo revisits this prayer journal. With new insights and a seasoned perspective, he highlights the spiritual path for those new to it and those who, like him, are always rediscovering it. His musings, meditations and messages are a font of inspiration for those seeking new ways to pray.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
spiritually soothing  Aug 4, 2008
I happened upon this book at a Franciscan academic meeting.And what a find!
I read a section or two everyday. I am middle aged and consider myself religious and Bodo writes in such a way that I am literally soothed every day from some of the worries of my day. The latter portion of the book is new to those who read the first edition.All the words are new to me and in reading over and over again, I find faith in my journey.
I recommend this book for a silent retreat where you can sit and contemplate what the words mean for you.
 
The Secret of Life on the Road  Apr 27, 2008
This new work is an extension of Fr. Bodo's 1976 Song of the Sparrow, Meditations and Poems to Pray By, based largely on his experience as a seminary English teacher and spiritual director. The original material has been updated, particularly in terms of inclusive language, and entries covering the years 1979 to 2007 have been added.

Major themes of prayer, love, and writing are addressed through original poems and short meditations that include practical "tips" and personal observations. A sample tip recommends dividing our prayer period into saying a single Our Father and listening for the remaining time, "one of the best disciplines possible in learning to pray." In another section Fr. Bodo writes of the connection between prayer and action. We need not worry about our prayer, he explains, we need to worry about charity. "God's love for me in prayer is authenticated by my love for God in my neighbor."

Bodo, author of numerous books and articles, draws attention to the importance writing plays in his prayer life, yet his practices invite, rather than discourage, non-writers. For example, he describes sitting before a blank sheet of paper, sometimes for a very long time, awaiting words. Similarly, he points out, learning to pray involves "a time for staring and a time for waiting" in which we make ourselves available to God. He doesn't write a book, he says, he fills one page a day. The poetic version of that philosophy appears at the end of the new Song of Sparrows: The secret of life on the road / is not to get there before you're there / and not to live in the place you've left / while you're on the way.
