Afterall, the Blessed Virgin Mary was the spouse of the Holy Spirit
and the Word became flesh.
Where in the world did you get this from? Scripture please?
It's there. Prophesied in Isaias and fulfilled in St. Luke and St. Matthew.
soooooo that's it? That's how you back up your statement with scripture? Hmmmmm.
You asked ....I supplied the Scripture and only some of it.
That the Blessed VIrgin Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit is a Divine Mystery given to us by God.
"Spouse" here is not as you think in the physical, natural, earthly sense, but in the supernatural sense.
Isaias 7:14, prophecy gives us a hint..... "Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign. Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel."
By whom shall a Virgin conceive?
Sacred Tradition....according to the Apostles' Creed tells us a little more..."I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary....
How shall the Virgin Mary conceive a Divine Son? Supernaturally.
This is confirmed in St.Luke's account of the Annunciation...1:26-46
26 And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. 28 And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. 29 Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be. 30 And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.
31 Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. 33 And of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34 And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man? 35 And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
36 And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren: 37 Because no word shall be impossible with God. 38 And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. 39 And Mary rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda. 40 And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth.
41 And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: 42 And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. 43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.
46 And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. 48 Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. 49 Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
So here the prophecy of Isaias has clearly found it's fulfillment in Mary.
I understand that Isaias' "shall conceive" and the Apostles' Creed, "who was conceived by the Holy Spirit.." and St.Luke's v. 31, "Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb.."....to mean,
First that Almighty God has conferred upon the Virgin Mary a singular blessing for the entire human race. Here we start to understand the means by which in His Mercy and Goodness, He will accomplish His salvation plan.
Second, Jesus Christ our only Lord and Son of God, when He assumed human flesh in the womb of the Virgin Mary was not conceived like other men, from the seed of a man, but in a supernatural manner transcending the natural manner, that is, by the power of the Holy Spirit, so that the same Person remaining God as He was from all eternity became man what He was not before.
The Creed of the Council of Constantinople infallibly teaches, "Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from Heaven, and became incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and was made man."
St.John 1:14 teaches the same truth of this most holy mystery when he declared the nature of the Divine Word, "I the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God"..., and he concluded, "And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." So, the Word which is a Person of a Divine Nature, assumed human nature in such a manner that there should be one and the same Person in both the Divine and human natures.
Here we see the Blessed Trinity accomplishing the mystery of the Incarnation....the Son of God was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit. At the instant the Blessed Virgin Mary said, be it done unto me according to thy word...the sacred body of Christ, Perfect God and Perfect man was immediately formed in her womb.
The Blessed Virgin Mary subjected herself to supernatural majesty and grace. The Gospels are clear that Christ was conceived by power of the Holy Spirit which "overshadowed" Mary. St. Joseph recives a dream of the Divine Majesty being enacted in Mary and we know how he responded. St.Matt. 1:20.
