We need the help of the Holy Spirit so that we can not only love our family and friends but to love even those who are unkind to us.
It is sometimes very hard to love nasty people this is where the Holy Spirit can help us if we pray for that help. When we pray to the Holy Spirit and ask Him to help us, we must then act as if that prayer had been answered.
The Holy Spirit is also the Spirit of Divine Love, He is One with the Father and the Son and helps us to love God better.
When we pray we must never forget the Holy Spirit for He is very powerful and can speak for us to our Heavenly Father when we don't know what to say to our Heavenly Father.
In order to love we need the help of the Holy Spirit as the Holy Spirit is also gentle and He loves each of us as does God the Father and God the Son.
Always praise the Holy Spirit for this makes Him very happy.
