How much faith will remain in the sequence, after war and postwar upheaval, is yet to be seen. But of this we may be sure: that through this titillating process and its own wartime sufferings, postwar religion will become purer, truer, and more accommodating to modern needs. The toiling masses usually have little time for prayer and devotion, and still less time for mystical meditation and metaphysical study, so organized religion is a necessary way of taking care of their spiritual needs. In the fellowship of occasional public worship and through the sacramental means of grace, their emotions are uplifted, their hearts consoled.
