There is even a hierarchy in the Trinity, placing the Holy Spirit (the “feminine” one) at the bottom

I think you’re getting to something really important here: if we already tend to view the Trinity as very hierarchical — because we don’t know what to do with the Spirit, maybe — then what do we do with the reality that we’re most comfortable referring to the Spirit as feminine versus the other Persons of the Trinity? (What does that say about the Church’s view of women, the Church’s uncomfortability with the Spirit, and our inclination to make the Trinity into a power dynamic?)
