Could we please get a smaller, Catholic edition of this?

Yes.  Good idea.  YesYes

---

Also, for those that may not be as familiar with your library, you may already have some/many of the sermons in this larger set by Catholics depending on the base package you have and any other things you've purchased.  For example:

Verbum Basic ->  Ninety-Nine Homilies of Thomas Aquinas, Some of Chrysostom's Homilies in Early Church Fathers

Verbum Foundations -> St. Bernard Sermons on Advent & Christmas: Including the Famous Treatise on the Incarnation Called “Missus Est”, Alphonsus de Liguori Sermons for All the Sundays in the Year, Following in the Footsteps of Jesus (also below)

Verbum Scholar -> Lift Up Your Hearts, Some John Henry Newman, Preaching the Social Doctrine of the Church

... and more as you go up. 

Although not just homilies, some sermons by Catholics are available but not in the larger set, Like Pope Benedict's and John Paul II Homilies in the Catholic Studies Bundles.

Don't forget to check out the Homilies Bundle from Paulist Press

And this bundle from Fr. Steven Scherrer, Daily Biblical Sermons.

I also find the resources that are oriented towards the Lectionary to be helpful, such as The Word for Every Season (3 vols.), and Following in the Footsteps of Jesus (3 vols.)

Lots of good things our there.  Unfortunately, as SineNomine points out, they are not bundled together.  That would be nice.

I support this, but I'd like a protestant edition too Smile. I was put off buying because too much of what I would have added were Catholic homilies.

I'd support that. I wouldn't buy that edition, but I'd support it!

As a reference for others reading this thread, less than a quarter of the listed volumes are Catholic, by my count, including Sts. Augustine and John Chrysostom, whereas more than 3/4 of them are not Catholic (they are from post-Reformation ecclesial communities).

So the argument for a non-Catholic bundle--a good idea--is much stronger for a Catholic one.

Counting all pre-schism books as Catholic gives us 60 volumes of Catholic sermons

I looked at my math again and it turns out to have been terrible. I believe I may have accidentally managed to leave out St. John Chrysostom's volumes from the count.

I didn't mean to imply that you were wrong - I was simply providing more detail. I'm more concerned about why I count 2 volumes less than Faithlife.
