FOOTNOTES-2

the task--of initiation into those elements of the world's life which are, 

at the same time, natural functions of the adolescent soul. Here, however, 

is the sphere of the religious or ethical teacher. At puberty he has his 

great opportunity, the greatest he can ever obtain. The flower of sex that 

blossoms in the body at puberty has its spiritual counterpart which at the 

same moment blossoms in the soul. The churches from of old have recognized 

the religious significance of this moment, for it is this period of life 

that they have appointed as the time of confirmation and similar rites. 

With the progress of the ages, it is true, such rites become merely formal 

and apparently meaningless fossils. But they have a meaning nevertheless, 

and are capable of being again vitalized. Nor in their spirit and essence 

should they be confined to those who accept supernaturally revealed 

religion. They concern all ethical teachers, who must realize that it is 

at puberty that they are called upon to inspire or to fortify the great 

ideal aspirations which at this period tend spontaneously to arise in the 

youth's or maiden's soul.[38]
