Hello there,

Just purchased the Benedict XVI and JP II Homilies/Audiences and was all excited in anticipation of it coming up giving me papal homilies on relevant verses/sundays etc, but the Sermon Starter guide and Passage Guide seem to pull up everything in the kitchen sink except for these! 

Before you ask, I did let the indexing finish, even tried prioritising these resources. It's slightly deflating to find they don't appear. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Bless,
Leo

Faithlife is in the process of tagging sermons to appear in the sermon section. Few Catholic sermons have been coded yet ... Newman for example has but not the Church Fathers.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Thanks, that's reassuring. I did check on the Fathers as well, thought maybe I had to content myself with the Ancient literature tool mapping rather than proper sermons, great to know it's being looked at!

Bless,

Leo

The tagging for the papal homilies is not as straightforward as the resources we've done to date, where the passage being preached on is usually explicitly stated in the heading. I've done some preliminary work inferring the liturgical occasion from the date and attempting to infer the passage(s) being preached on from this, but it's going to require quite a bit more human review and judgment to decide when a particular homily is actually a good result for the passage or liturgical occasion being researched.

If you want these homilies to show up in your Passage Guide, your best bet for now would be to create a collection containing them and add a Collection section to your guide that searches it. This will add a search for all citations of your passage in these resources.

I guessed there might be such a problem. How about maybe just tagging them for the time being to the lectionary and the immediately obvious contexts (if the sermon lends itself to that!) 

Am not totally sure how to go about doing what you've suggested, but will give it a try - could you maybe point me to the right training video or the like please?

Thanks for your help!

Could you post a link to this resource? I can't find them, only in Pre-Pub state. Thank you!

I could be mistaken, but I think the only way you can get them currently is through a bundle.  They are available in Verbum Master, Verbum Capstone, the Catholic Studies Bundle, L and the Catholic Studies Bundle, XL.  As I already had most everything else in the Catholic Studies, L bundle because of my Verbum 6 Scripture Study package and previous Logos 4 Catholic bundles, I was able to pick up the audiences and homilies of Benedict and John Paul II (and a few other books) for ~$20 with dynamic pricing.  So you might check the Studies bundle and see what your dynamic price is.

Thank you so much! I was a similar situation as yours, so I've just acquired them for $26. I wonder why they're not available individually.

I'm not sure.  Though, it probably worked out better for both of us.  I think I got 2 trade books and the audiences and homilies of both John Paul II and Benedict for $20 something.  Just the audiences of John Paul II by themselves would probably be at least that much if priced individually.

EDIT: Actually, I took a look on the Catholic Bundles page and was able to click on the individual resources, which each have their own page.  Here is the one for the JPII audiences:

It is $25, though it cannot be purchased separately.
