In this video, Br. Bugnolo explains why all Christians need to take Mary, the Mother of Jesus, a lot more seriously as a role model.
If, like Mary, you want to come to the help of the needy, please consider doing so by means of a donation to the Humanitarian Fund founded by Br. Alexis Bugnolo:

Whenever you speak either about either Our Lord or Our Lady ,Brother Alexis, it is always compulsory viewing. The mother of Jesus was an example to all Christians of true holiness , and that God works his greatest miracles through simple people.
Wonderful, wonderful discourse. I do not often comment on any kind of media now, but this video deserves a big thank you and bravo.. Suggestion – when you have some time, (yeah, right!) why don’t you collect some of these videos and transcribe them, and add some of your editorials like the stellar True Devotion to St Raphael, and publish them in a collection under the auspices of the Franciscan Archive? These are as good as anything I’ve read, and they are well sourced and cited.
Don’t have the time. And actually, no one really finds my videos that helpful, because they never share them with others and only a few hundred ever see them. I do them more out of a sense of devotion, with a little hope that my readers keep supporting my apostolic works, though now that is no longer likely. I could raise more money flipping burgers at McDonalds.
I do feel your pain.
I’m a 71 year old retired violinist/conductor/composer. I have been concertmaster of 2 orchestras, principal conductor of three, and resident composer of two, and I am now, thankfully, a forgotten man. I doubt I have had more than a dozen people listen to my symphonic works since I have retired three years ago . . . . and of the hundreds of students I’ve taught in my career, only a few have gained posts in professional orchestra, and maybe a dozen have taught music in public schools or conservatories. But I know that I have influenced many people to the richness of the art through teaching individuals, and groups in public schools and at the University level.
Yes, maybe only a few hundred people see your videos, but I’m one of them and your influence spreads outward – I can guarantee that. I’ve been discouraged many times in my career, but always somebody has said similar words to me that I am saying to you.
Take heart, good Friar, you are doing wonderful things for God, and even if you drag only a few of us along, your words will reach many more, and your prayers many, many, many more.
The internet is a vast empty sinkhole which simply cannot compete with the Communion of Saints.
May God Bless and keep you.
