Default MLA Citations for the catechism

I need to see how it is done. I have a big paper due tomorrow and I need correct ones. Please help if you know, but don't guess if you don't know.

Thank You

Default Re: MLA Citations for the catechism

Modern Language Association. It's one of the standard citation formats.

I'm not sure that it would be any different from citing anything else in a book, except that I would use the section number of the Catechism rather than the page number. So the citation would be (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1234). And the bibliography would be done as normal for a book without an author. (I don't have the Catechism in front of me so I'm assuming that there's no author listed.)

Here is a website just happens to use the Catechism as an example, when writing footnotes and endnotes according to MLA.

But the horse is gone, so I guess there wasn't much sense in shutting the barn door.

I know it's been awhile since the original person posted this, but it sure helped me. Thanks.
