We examined whether meta-emotional competencies of attention to emotions, emotional repair, and emotional clarity help explain the link between religiosity and meaning in life. We tested the significance of two indirect pathway models linking religiosity to presence of meaning and search for meaning, respectively, via meta-emotional competencies. The study provided evidence that emotional repair explained the link between religiosity and presence, whereas attention to emotions explained the link between religiosity and search.
