"And we determined it was olive oil, a scented olive oil,"  "Some of the witnesses claimed it smelled of roses, so something similar to the oil I bless and consecrate each year that we use for baptism, for confirmations and for ordination of the priests."

Does that mean it's not a miracle? Not necessarily. An investigation is still underway.
