This study deals with the question of which dimensions or aspects of religion are related to a sense of life meaningfulness. 104 students of Catholic grammar schools (aged 17 to 19) were given a set of questionnaires containing measures of meaningfulness (Personal Meaning Index and Life Meaningfulness Scale) and different religiosity dimensions (internal, external, quest, significance, orthodoxy, mature religiosity). Correlation analysis of religion dimension scores and all individual items within these dimensions with meaning measures showed that connecting religiosity with life meaningfulness involves: considering religion as very important in one's own life, active effort to transfer religious beliefs into daily behaviour and decisions, commitment to religious beliefs and activities, and receiving support and reassurance from religion.
