What to Say if Someone Takes the Lord’s Name in Vain (The Patrick Madrid Show)

Patrick Madrid and a caller named Diana discuss a prayer she uses when someone takes the Lord’s name in vain. Diana shares that her mother taught her a prayer of reparation, which is “Praise be the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,” to counteract blasphemy. Patrick mentions that Carmelites also use the greeting “Praise be Jesus Christ.” They both agree that quietly saying this prayer is a usually more of a constructive response than confronting the person directly, as it can have a positive influence and potentially help them reconsider their habit of blasphemy.
