“Indeed how inferior they are, in terms of holiness, to blessed Mary, Mother of the Lord! She, aware of God dwelling in her, freely proclaims: “For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed!”(Lk I: 48)”

Jerome, Contra Pelagianos 1, 16; PL 23, 533.

Here St. Jerome talks Virgin Mary’s holiness, he describes her as full of the Holy Spirit. Those baptized in the name of the Holy Trinity are dwellings of the Holy Spirit.
