comment How is the belief that Christians are both adopted and begotten sons of God reconciled?
It seems the Son is not the "seed" but rather the "will" of the Father. The Son is the "will" born out, or the seed that bears fruit. The Fruit bearer is the one we are to be born of, the Holy Spirit. Which inhabits our heart. Our physical lives are adopted, our Eternal lives are "begotten".

@jaredad It is hard to respond to your use of the word "awful". I have not found any variance to the "Old Roman Symbol". Do you?

comment Are there biblical passages supporting a “quasi-incarnation” attributed to the mystical union of the Holy Spirit and Mary?
As you know the Holy Spirit's dual procession (From Father and Son) is yet questioned by the Eastern Orthodox Church since 1054. You are correct the answer to this question would impinge upon the "filioque" (the Son also).

Geremia: Very Good, yet I am not limiting my search to a Catholic perspective. The implications to Mary from this question might make a Catholic response difficult.

Thank you for directing me to this answer. What I read here seems very easily understood if the Holy Spirit is maternal. It seems the Holy Spirit's procession from the Father is one of bearance. The Holy Spirit appears to bear out the Father's "will". If the Holy Spirit's procession is as the eternal Matriarch, then the "overshadowing" of Mary would have been a dual Maternity explaining the dual nature of Jesus Christ and the Paternal contributions of God the Father.by the maternal bearance of the Holy Spirit.

Sola Gratia: The Hebrew word for Spirit is Ruwach a feminine noun. Even the Greek word Pneuma is a neuter noun. The Greek pronoun autos and ekeinos are often translated into English as masculine based upon the translators gender concept of Spirit.

If though the Holy Spirit is the Mother of the Only Begotten then the relationship between God the Father and the Holy Spirit would solidify the Holy Spirit's place in the Trinity.

If by that you make the Holy Spirit the Patriarch, then what of the Father. And if the Trinity is acting as Eternal Patriarch How is the Son (the one eternally born) the Patriarch.
