ORAL TRADITION

Oral tradition survives up to the present day as to how Moro piratical attacks reached their height in the 18th century that saw the frequent invasion of the shores of Boac through the mouth of the river in Brgy. Laylay. Similar attacks were recorded in the other towns of the island. 
In Boac, townspeople would take refuge in the fortress of the cathedral and fervently pray for the intercession of their patroness, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception to save them from the attack. 

In one particular attack, the raiders seemed to have persisted, killing many native defenders, so the story goes, when suddenly a powerful storm came. At that point the people saw a glowing apparition of the Lady with arms outstretched standing atop the fortress wall on the southern side of the church. She was in the act of driving away the intruders. The amazing apparition drove away the Moros who fled in their sailboats. 

This episode, according to the story inspired the creation of a new name for Our Lady as Mahal na Ina ng Biglang Awa. (Mother of Instant Mercy, 'Pronto Socorro') 

The cathedral was dedicated to her in 1792. A marker on the church's front wall declares thus: "naniniwala ang mga tao na siya ang nagligtas sa pagsalakay ng mga Moro noong ika-18 dantaon."
