Here is an interesting quote from Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson on the Last Supper and the Incarnation.
“Thus, in that last emphatic act of the life of His Humiliation He took Bread, and cried, not Here is my Essential Self, but ‘This is my Body which is given for you,’ since that Body was the instrument of Redemption.
And, if the Christian claim is to be believed, this act was but a continuation (though in another sense) of that first act known as the Incarnation. He who leaned over the Bread at that “last sad Supper with His own” had, in another but similar manner, leaned over Mary herself with similar words upon His lips.“
From Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson, Christ In The Church (published 1913).
