How do I cite the Catechism of the Catholic Church?

MLA Citations....

"..the throne of Peter, and to the chief Church whence priestly unity takes its source..." -St. Cyprian

"...the Roman Church, the Head of the whole Roman world... from thence flow all the rights of venerable Communion to all persons." -St. Ambrose

"You cannot then deny that you do know that upon Peter first in the City of Rome was bestowed the Episcopal Cathedra, on which sat Peter, the Head of all the Apostles for which reason he was called Cephas,  that, in this one Cathedra, unity should be preserved by all, lest the other Apostles might claim -each for himself- separate Cathedras, so that he who should set up a second Cathedra against the unique Cathedra would already be a schismatic and a sinner." -St. Opatus of Milevis

There are MLA guides on the net.  In general, you'd want to cite by paragraph as Spooky suggests, but if you are using a specific copy, you can cite by page number.

 

For the full reference, you'd need translator, etc., since the main text is in Latin.

Modern Language Association.

 

In academic papers, there are specific style guidelines.  The prof / instructor usually picks one of the standard formats.

 

MLA is one of the stock formats.   The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers is their standard reference.

 

More than you ever wanted to know (seriously) is here:

Citation Machine! (find it here: http://www.citationmachine.net/) All you do is plug in all the info from your book, and it'll give you the proper format for textual citations and the citation for your bibliography/works cited page. I don't see any reason why you couldn't just put in the info from whatever English copy of the CCC you have...

You also may do well to cite which edition you are citing from, as you know the second edition just came out recently.

Oh, that's right- you guys would have known that already right?
