No, Aquinasfan, I don't believe the Holy Spirit operates through Mary at all. As you can see, I'm not a Catholic and Mary is a Catholic ideal, not a protestant one. I believe she was the mother of Jesus Christ and that was her main purpose. The Holy Spirit will baptize the Muslims in the Holy Spirit without her help.
All the baptized are incorporated into the mystical Body of Christ. And death does not separate us from the love of Christ (or the body of Christ). Scripture teaches us to pray for each other. So why wouldn't those in heaven pray for us? After all, they are more "alive" than we are.
