I've gotten into the habit of whispering this or mentally saying it. It gets tiring being around coworkers who use the Holy Name as an expletive almost constantly.
It's really depressing that the name which is supposed to make men kneel has been disparaged to the point of being used as a curse word than a blessing. Unfortunately, I still catch myself thinking it in times of duress out of habit.
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
