A thought occurred to me earlier as I was reading various apparitions from Our Lady, why do we take God’s name in vain? When did it actually start? The Apparition of Our Lady of La Salette (1846), Our Lady said “Those who drive carts cannot speak without putting the name of my Son in the middle”.
“It was quite the opposite when you found bad potatoes, you swore oaths, and you included the name of my Son.”
I’m just curious why we continue to do this?
