Mention the name of God with all reverence ( Saint Tikhon of Zadonsk )

Mention the name of God with all reverence, fear and devotion, and that only when and where we ought to mention it, because the name of God is holy , and those that mention it without reverence sin grievously. Render, then, all reverence to the name of God as to God Himself. You mention the name of an earthly king with respect; that is as it should be. How much more should we mention the name of God the Heavenly King, which is revered, beloved and sweet to angels and to the souls of the saints, with extreme reverence.
