Good question and it often times opens up a bit of a rabbit hole if you are interrested in going down it.
To answer your question, yes and no.
No Mary is not the Holy Spirit in Catholic dogma, however she has been used in certain cultures under the catholic umbrella (Latin America mostly) in
a triune sense to help absorb those native cultures into their doctrines.
In the Bible exists no trinity, there are however a couple of verses commonly translated as "Father, Son and Holy Ghost" in English versions of
scripture, but when you understand the context and original greek written, it does not mention those three in one. The trinity is a wholely Catholic
doctrine and not of scripture origin. It's authority and any who believe in its authority owe that authority to the catholic church only through the
office of the pope.
The word trinity and its current form is not scriptoral, and exists solely due to papal command.
In scripture there is God the Father/Creator and His son who had a begining as birthed through Mary (did not eternally exist). Any beliefs above or
beyond those two God beings (Elohim) and there governmental structure (God the Creator above all and Jesus Christ the High Priest and King of Kings)
is doctrine added to scripture by fiat established through the papal office and have no authority in scripture.
Most of all pagan religions have a core of three gods (father, mother, child), you see this in several religions such as Canaan (Baal, Easter,
Tammutz), Egypt (Osiris, Isis, Horus), Greece (Zeus, Hera, Appolo), Nordic (Odin, Freya, Thor) etc.
This is because all false pagan religious systems stem from an acient story that took place prior to the confounding of languages at the destruction
of the Tower of Babel. A story between a father (Cush) a mother (Semiremis) and their child (Nimrod). After Nimrod (horus) killed his father Cush
(Osiris) only to be killed by his great uncle Seth (Set) as a result of usurping God's governoment through Noah after the flood, Semiremis set up the
architype for the pagan pantheon. After languages were changed, each culture passed the story down in there own format until you have the varias
pagan trinities you see today.
The key to understanding how the christian trinity was created is to understand the "mystery babylon" spoken of in scripture. The religious system
created in babylon under semiremis' direction, never went away. They were altered and changed overtime to keep God's truth hidden from mankind as
cultures changed/evolved. When Simon Magnus (Simon the Magician) saw the true power of the Holy Spirit (power of God, Spirit of God which is Holy
because it belongs to Him) working through the apostle Peter, he saught to buy that power. AFter being rejected by Peter, Simon magnus went to
Overtime this Simon Magnus became the head of the pagan church in Rome, a title at the time reffered to as the Pater (father of fathers). So here we
have a Simon Pater living in Rome as the head of the Roman Pagan church just after the death of Jesus Christ. This Simon Pater is what history
believes is Simon Peter, the fist pope (pater, father of fathers) of the Roman Catholic Church, Simon Peter was not the fist pope, he was the head of
God's church at the time Simon Pater was the head of the Church of Rome. He carried the ancient pagan mystery churches from babylon and incorporated
them into the Roman Catholic church, so that by the time we reach 100 AD, ther are now two very different branches of early christianity, God's true
church (Church of God) and a counterfiet Roman Catholic Church (universal church of Rome).
If your authority comes from the Catholic Church rather then scripture then you are Catholic by belief, even if you claim to be protestant.
By the end of the Counsel of Nicea the following doctrines were established through the Holy Roman Emperor Constantine as voted on by the Roman
Catholic church which go against scripture and God's truth:
1. The Holy Trinity
2. Sunday Worship (Baal the sungod, was honored on the 1st day of the week).
3. Pagan holidays (chirstmas/winter solstice rebirth of the sun god's son Tammutz, evergreen tree; Easter honoring the fertility goddess Easter,
mother of Tammutz).
4. Weekly recieving of the Euchraist.
By contrast, here is what scripture says is true.
1. There is One God the Father the Almighty Creator of the heavens (spiritual realm) and the Earth (physical realm).
2. You are to keep a 7th day Sabbath Holy as a sign (same word as "mark" in Revelation) forever that I am your God.
3. There are 7 annual Holy Days, created by God for mankind to keep Holy because they teach mankind about God's plan for the salvation of all who
have ever lived.
4. You must observe an annual Passover of the Eternal, one that Jesus Christ fulfilled and altered the observation of in 31 AD, during the last
supper. Once a year, God's people do as Jesus Christ asked them to do during the last supper.
