This episode tells the story of how an unlikely series of events that began with a Congolese man named BULA led to a four-hour lunch meeting at Gbadolite, the remote palatial estate of MOBUTU SESE SEKO, the former ruler of the DR Congo. In that 12 February 1986 meeting, approval was granted for official recognition of the Church in that country.

“Not by Bread Alone: Stories of the Saints in the DR Congo” is the first in the series “Not by Bread Alone: Episodes” and introduces the history and peoples of the people of this vast central African nation. The video gives a sneak preview of some of the upcoming episodes. These episodes and other video shorts will be posted as they become available over the next few years. A YouTube playlist for the series is available at (English) and (French).
