Hello Ramona (Again),
My apologies I still think that “cardinal” is a play on words but the correction is that it could symbolize cardinal direction (not soldier as I had previously indicated. I’m not sure why I thought that a cardinal was a rank in the military) as in the 4 cardinal directions of east, west, north and south which also aligns with the number you saw. Again this is praying for direction (it could be personal and\or for the earth as indicated in my previous entry). I assumed that the cardinals were red but you didn’t say that. Kindly correct me if they were not red. Thanks!
