What if you could search for homilies on next Sunday's readings?

That's a neat trick.  Unfortunately, I got zero results in my library.  I guess I need more homily books!  I am filing this tip away for future reference, though. :)

Yes. This is mostly a tease at this point, as we're just starting on applying this tagging. So far, we've just applied it to the Paulist Press Homilies Bundle and Daily Biblical Sermons.

Fantastic. I was going to test the new bundle as soon as indexing finished. We need to hire a couple of clones of you to handle our impatience.

I say fantastic too, Louis.  And it's been almost 2 weeks since I got my last LitPress catalog too.  

It's things like this that will finally move Logos out of the 1980s 'search the Bible!!' and the early 1900s Bible dictionaries.

This is an excellent new feature.

Ah.  Yes, I don't have either of those resources.

I'm excited that you guys are working on this, though.  It seems to me like lots of homily tagging would make Verbum all the more attractive to priests and deacons as a homily preparation tool.

Now that I'm thinking of homilies, I think a potentially great resource would be what Dr. Hahn does for his St. Paul Center.  They post reflections on the Sunday Mass readings on their website (http://www.salvationhistory.com/homily_helps).  Though the website only goes back a few years, they have been doing this in print for the last 12 years or so through their monthly newsletter.  I don't know that these have ever been put in book form anywhere. It could be a Verbum exclusive. Big Smile

I think that that could be a great idea that would fit in well with Faithlife's other offerings.
