Does it help that St. Paul calls the body of any Christian a “Temple of the Holy Spirit”?

Or, when Mary visits her cousin Elizabeth, according to Luke, “And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, ...” Mary, of course, has already been visited by and filled with the Holy Spirit.

This is just what occurs to me immediately from the Bible. I’m sure a lot more could be made of it.

Paul calling believers temples of Holy Spirit

is an indictment

AGAINST

all the Marian excesses vs a support of them.

It is a declaration that all believers are equal before The Cross and before God in such regards.

NO special stature or status for Mary inherent there, at all.
