In the heart of Lipa City Batangas, lies a church which is very known to all Batanggenyo’s. This convent of the contemplative order of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel was the site of a mysterious "Shower of Petals" to a visionary nun after World War II. It attracts pilgrims and curious tourists passing by the city to marvel at rose petals on display that supposedly has images of Mary and Jesus imprinted that date back to 1948. Catholic devotees attribute the images on the rose petals to Mary, who took on the name Our Lady Mediatrix of All Grace, though the Catholic has yet to fully investigate the event of the miraculous rose petals and release an official statement.
