Best Ignatian Songs: Stand By Me

You may have already seen this week’s Ignatian song on YouTube. More than 14 million people have. It’s an inventive version of “Stand By Me,” sung by musicians all over the world. It’s a creation of the Playing for Change Project which promotes global solidarity through music. It certainly has the Ignatian spirit–open, fresh, and drenched in gratitude.

I found about it from Marco Ambrosio’s blog. He’s also drenched in the Ignatian spirit. Enjoy.
