It would be nice if Faithlife would bundle up some of the Catholic preaching aids that it is and/or soon will be producing and put them together in a nice, easy-to-find, easy-to-buy collection. I imagine it might sell pretty well, too.

Some are already bundled:  https://www.logos.com/product/43319/homilies-bundle 

What other ones are you thinking of?

Ideally, good ones that I don't know about yet! That is, in terms of new ones. As to what's already there, a bundle containing old and new (and, obviously, not limited to one publisher) would be good.

Right now, the majority of contemporary homilies available appear to be highly social justice-focused. Social justice isn't a bad thing by any means(!), but I think it would be good to add some collections using other approaches.

May I suggest something slightly off topic - a group of books integrating sermons into liturgy as a whole?

  • The Prayers of the New Missal: A Homiletic and Catechetical Companion by Anscar J. Chupungco OSB and J. Michael Joncas
  • Between the Ambo and the Altar: Biblical Preaching and The Roman Missal, by Guerric DeBona OSB
  • Preaching the Rites of Christian Initiation (Forum Essays) by Jan Michael Joncas
  • Sharing the Word Through the Liturgical Year by Gustavo Gutierrez
  • Preaching the Scriptures of the Masses of the Blessed Virgin Mary by David Brown
  • Religious Involvement in Hearing Sermons: A Grounded Theory Study in Empirical Theology and Homiletics by T.T.J. Pleizier

Here's another one, from Paulist Press, a Catholic publisher:

EDIT:

And there's also The Sacred Conversation: The Art of Catholic Preaching and the New Evangelization which is part of this bundle from Emmaus Road:

Going through my notes and including one I haven't seen because it isn't published yet, what among these would interest you?

  • Sundays at Magic Monastery by Thomas Keating et. al.
  • Flowers in the Wind: Story-Based Homilies by Fr. Robert J. Kus
  • Homilies of Thomas Keating by Thomas Keating
  • A Prophetic Bishop Speaks to His People: Complete Homilies of Oscar Romero by Oscar Arnulfo Romero [okay the opposite of what you want but ...)
  • Gethsemani Homilies by Matthew Kelty and William O. Paulsell
  • Singing For The Kingdom: The Last of the Homilies by Matthew Kelty and William O. Paulsell
