Liturgy of the Word-Teaching Mass
You can listen to the audio from my teaching Mass I did on the Liturgy of the Word. It is not nearly as good in audio form as in person, but it will have to do. Here are resources that give more information on certain topics I talked about.

St. Jerome quote on the Word of God in papal encyclical Verbum Domini “The sacramentality of the word can thus be understood by analogy with the real presence of Christ under the appearances of the consecrated bread and wine. (CCC 1373-1374) By approaching the altar and partaking in the Eucharistic banquet we truly share in the body and blood of Christ. The proclamation of God’s word at the celebration entails an acknowledgment that Christ himself is present, that he speaks to us, (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 7) and that he wishes to be heard. Saint Jerome speaks of the way we ought to approach both the Eucharist and the word of God: “We are reading the sacred Scriptures. For me, the Gospel is the Body of Christ; for me, the holy Scriptures are his teaching. And when he says: whoever does not eat my flesh and drink my blood (Jn 6:53), even though these words can also be understood of the [Eucharistic] Mystery, Christ’s body and blood are really the word of Scripture, God’s teaching. When we approach the [Eucharistic] Mystery, if a crumb falls to the ground we are troubled. Yet when we are listening to the word of God, and God’s Word and Christ’s flesh and blood are being poured into our ears yet we pay no heed, what great peril should we not feel?”. (In Psalmum 147: CCL 78, 337-338) Christ, truly present under the species of bread and wine, is analogously present in the word proclaimed in the liturgy. A deeper understanding of the sacramentality of God’s word can thus lead us to a more unified understanding of the mystery of revelation, which takes place through “deeds and words intimately connected”; (Dei Verbum, 2) an appreciation of this can only benefit the spiritual life of the faithful and the Church’s pastoral activity.” (Verbum Domini, 56)
