PERPETUAL ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT, NUNS OF THE
(AP, Official Catholic Directory #3190); a cloistered community of nuns with papal approbation, dedicated to an apostolate of contemplative prayer, primarily through the perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The order was founded at Rome, Italy, on July 8, 1807, by Mother Mary Magdalene of the Incarnation (Catalina Sordini Movizzo, 1770–1824), a Franciscan sister from the convent on the island of Ischia in the bay of Naples. The nuns, who take solemn vows, are engaged in constant prayer, including the Divine Office, before the exposed Blessed Sacrament. In the U.S. they are located in El Paso, Texas (1925), and San Francisco, Calif. (1928). Worldwide, the congregation has houses in Spain, Mexico, Chile and Africa.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
