Pipe "...and Consciously So in the Revision."

This is a Difficulty level 4 out of 5.

Tolkien said that the LotR was made consciously Christian (or Catholic) in the revision.

All of you who have read the four History of Middle Earth volumes dealing with Tolkien's process of writing The Lord of the Rings: have you been able to detect the differences between the early drafts and the final published version that show it was consciously Christian in the revision? If so, what are they?

I'm looking for hard evidence here. I doubt it will be easy to find, but I want to throw this out there because -well darn it, I'm curious. I hope some of you (maybe even one of you) will be willing to take up the gauntlet.
