Religions are said to bring meaning into an otherwise chaotic world. The purpose of this article is to evaluate that meaning-making capacity on an empirical basis. To do so I use data from the World Values Survey. There is a strong, negative correlation between feeling that life is meaningless and feeling happy. Hence, if religions do bring meaning to the life of believers, religious people might be happier. That is in fact the finding of this study. Also religious people are less prone to feelings of meaninglessness, independently of how happy they are. It seems that they are better at making meaning of life. The correlation between religiousness and happiness are positive for almost every group; it does not matter if they are rich or poor, whether they are well educated and so on. Some groups, though, have stronger correlations than others. For instance, widowed have a rather strong correlation compared to say, singles. The reason could be that when confronted with death, coping is done by means of meaning-making. In sum, religious meaning-making seems to have a significant effect on people’s perception of life, especially when it comes to dealing with unsolvable problems like death.
