Hello, would an apologist be able to help me find information, either in Scripture or Tradition, that explains where we have the teaching that Elijah saw the cloud prefiguring the coming of Our Lady? I keep reading this teaching but I don’t see it and I really want to find it. I’ve put the scripture below that I’m referencing about St. Elijah. Thank you!
Scripture: 1Kings 18: 43, 44
43 And he said to his servant: Go up, and look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said: There is nothing. And again he said to him: Return seven times.
44 And at the seventh time, behold, a little cloud arose out of the sea like a man’s foot. And he said: Go up and say to Achab: Prepare thy chariot and go down, lest the rain prevent thee.
45 And while he turned himself this way and that way, behold the heavens grew dark, with clouds, and wind, and there fell a great rain. And Achab getting up went away to Jezrahel:
46 And the hand of the Lord was upon Elias, and he girded up his loins and ran before Achab, till he came to Jezrahel.
