What are Mass cards?

Question:

Would you be able to tell me what Mass cards are? Also, why do we preface each Mass with &quot;This Mass is being offered in memory of so-and-so&quot; ?<br />

Answer:

Mass cards are sent to people to inform them that a Mass will be said for their intentions (prayer concerns).

If a Mass is being celebrated for a specific individual–either for the intentions of a living person or for the repose of the soul of a person who has died–it is often announced at the beginning of the Mass or at another suitable point.
