Holy Fathers on the Name of God: St. Peter of Kiev

"Let us glorify the Unoriginate Father and His Only-begotten Son, Christ our God, and the All-pure, All-good, Life-creating Spirit. For this is how the faithful glorify the All-holy Name of God and with that Divine Power we are delivered from the visible and invisible enemies in this age and in the age to come."
First Epistle of St. Peter, Metropolitan of Kiev Lives of the Russian Saints, Optina 1993, p. 568
