New 'blog: Requiescat in pace

Jane of Alle Psalite and her newly-minted husband have started a new blog called Requiescat in pace. The concept is unusual:
[I]t has been a tradition for at least a century for Catholic families to have prayer cards printed when a loved one dies to remind people to pray for that person’s soul. Many of these end up in the trash, or tucked in prayer books.
We’ve found a few such cards tucked in used prayer books that we’ve bought or inherited, and decided that these souls should not be forgotten. We plan to post scans of both sides of the cards, in hope that our readers will find the artwork on the front sides of the cards interesting, and will pray for the souls of the deceased mentioned on the reverse.
What a wonderful idea!
