October 1989 - Fr. Ernest Larkin, Investigative Commission of the Diocese of Phoenix:
"We don't think that these are hoaxes or that there is any attempt to deceive anybody. We simply maintain that there is not enough evidence to say that these are miracles."
January 8, 1990 - Bishop Thomas O'Brien of Phoenix, AZ
"The commission concluded that the messages (locutions) are explainable within the range of ordinary human experience and obviously we cannot know for certain whether or not the locutions or visions are miraculous in the true sense of the word….a mode of action beyond the ordinary laws of nature and caused by an exceptional, direct Divine intervention."
