- Successive local bishops have reached the conclusion of non constat de supernaturalitate.
- THEN the Yugoslavian bishop’s conference confirmed this view.
- As proven above, The Vatican, under both John Paul II and Benedict XVI, has always encouraged further investigations and sent indirect hints that the apparitions are true. The Vatican respects the hierarchical order and does not make a formal statement which is still in the hands of the Episcopal Conference of Bosnia-Herzegovina (which inherited the authority of the dissolved Yugoslavian bishop’s conference).
