Pope Francis Is Sent Three Bullets inside Envelope
Following the discovery, an investigation is now underway
Pope Francis was sent an envelope that contained three bullets which were later intercepted near Milan, Italian media reported.
The envelope had French postage and was addressed to "The Pope - Vatican City, Piazza S. Pietro in Rome," according to Affaritaliani.
The mail was reportedly seized by police in the sorting center in Peschiera Borromeo, near Milan's outskirts.
The presence of bullets inside the envelopes was reported by the manager.
Following the discovery, an investigation is now underway.
The pope recently led a prayer on Sunday in Saint Peter's Square in Vatican City, just 500 miles from where the envelope was found.
The pope is expected to meet Hungary's bishops and other Church and Jewish representatives this month.
Last month, Neon Nettle reported that Jesuit Father Thomas Reese warned the pope's recent hospitalization has marked "the beginning of the end of his papacy."

Father Thomas Reese said time “is running out” for the pope.
Father Reese, who recently urged his followers to support “pro-choice Democrats,” said Francis pontificate will only succeed “if he is followed by popes who are in sync with his approach to Catholicism, and this is not guaranteed."
“He has appointed sympathetic men to the College of Cardinals, but conclaves are unpredictable as his own election showed,” Reese warned.
Luis Badilla, the editor of Vatican news aggregator Il Sismografo, called the pope's health “severe" following his recent colon operation.
Badilla said that journalists are not doing him any favors by downplaying his illness.
"There is a very significant detail that many “underestimate, ignore, or manipulate,” he writes, namely that “the disease that has affected Pope Francis is severe and degenerative” and “could also be chronic.”
“The Holy Father will certainly return to the Vatican to resume his path in the footsteps of Peter," Badilla insists.
"But he will never be the same again,” Badilla insists.
Meanwhile, the state of the pope’s health may well affect future travel plans and other events, he added.
"It is clear that Francis is eager to go to Budapest in mid-September for the closure of the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress and then on to Slovakia,” Badilla notes.
“But no one knows today whether this pilgrimage will be possible.”
