The red cardinal has many symbolic meanings to people of different cultures and faiths. In Christianity, for example, it may represent the fire and vitality of the holy spirit as well as the blood of Christ. It can also represent hope and restoration, providing people who are down on their luck motivated so that they don’t give up hope. Some Christians even believe that a cardinal sighting is a message from God or a loved one who has died. Despite these beliefs, cardinals aren’t mentioned in the Christian Bible.
