The rock in this cave is very crumbly, white chalk (tuff) that was reduced to powder: they were made into rolls and sent throughout the country. It was said that she had contracted this virtue, since the Blessed Virgin having one day withdrawn there, gave breast to little Jesus, and dropped a few drops of her milk on a crevice of this rock: a source would have it immediately sprung, or else the cave would have become entirely white. This white earth bore the name of "Milk of the Virgin" * Cave of Elijah: located in Haifa in Israel, it is in this cave, sacred for Jews, Christians, Muslims and Druze, that the prophet Elijah would have prayed before facing the priests of Baal on Mount Carmel and that he would then have escaped the wrath of Queen Jezebel. * Simon Stock is an English Carmelite from the 13th century. He was one of the first Generals of the order, and he remained one of the most famous. His great notoriety comes from a vision he would have had of the Virgin Mary giving him the Scapular. He is revered as blessed in the Roman Catholic Church, and considered a saint in the Carmelite order.
