This document should be in Verbum if it is not already AND the CCC lectionary should be made available in lectionary format.

Love it!

I'll see what we have, and what we can do.

The document includes CCC references for the entire 3-year cycle plus a handful of other solemnities, if that's your question. Just scroll down.

I agree that this "Homiletic Directory" is a very useful document, but since it is probably the only document from this Congregation published over the intervening years that is worth porting to Logos format, perhaps it could be added to the "Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments Collection" as a 7th volume? 

It's not entirely clear to me what MJ means by "the CCC lectionary" - whether that is simply the CCC references to the lectionary schedule as published in this document, or if it is a reference to something more extensive? Also, are you thinking about a document that provides the references only, or something that displays the texts referenced?

The "Lectionary" resource type seems to be a different kind of thing, but there are several resources of type "Bible Commentary" that link on the lectionary markers (e.g. 7th Sunday of Easter) in a way that a CCC Lectionary resource could be effectively created (e.g. Following in the Footsteps of Jesus by Pagola, or The Lectionary Commentary by Van Harn). This is also true of "Sermons" resources, and even of at least one "Monograph" resource (The Paulist Liturgy Planning Guide by Boadt & Allen). This would suggest that the "Homiletic Directory" document could be produced as a typical "Monograph" resource, while being tagged with markers for the Lectionary values, allowing it to be synced with the RCC Lectionary. I'm wondering if that would meet the ask here, assuming the CCC references (and not full texts) are what is in mind? 

On a similar note, the Henry Wansbrough lectionary commentary The Sunday Word does not appear to have markings for lectionary values on the section headers, and it would be significantly improved if it did.

I am suggesting that the schedule portion of it be printed in the format of a Verbum lectionary so that it would work seamlessly on the dashboard of the home page, integrate with the lectionary layout, be able to be used in a linked set on the liturgical date, be able to be used in English/Latin/Spanish . . . This is not the same as publishing the resource with liturgical dates for which simply being able to use in a linked set is sufficient.

I would be happy to see a "Part 2" with all or at least most of the most recent CDW documents, even the short ones released since the beginning of the pandemic.
