Fr. Slavko Barbaric, a doctor of social psychology and a Franciscan priest, examined all six visionaries. He concluded that there was no sign of hallucination and that the children behaved independently from each other. Fr. Slavko would later become more involved in the lives of the visionaries and the parish of Medjugorje. Fr. Slavko was assigned to Medjugorje at this time and began to work very closely with all the visionaries.
