“Namacpacan” is an Ilocano word meaning “one who feeds” or “food provider”. (WikiPinas) The Lady of Namacpacan is one of the many tourist attractions in the province of La Union.
This intrepid writer has confirmed from “inside” sources that “the Miraculous Lady” is, in fact, seven feet in statue form. She may be spending time at San Lorenzo Spiritual Center, PCC and various “hermanos” and “hermanas” during her more than one year pilgrimage.
