My Favorite Week in Ordinary Time

The first week of October is DEFINITELY my favorite week in Ordinary Time.
Right at the beginning, on October 1st, is the feast of St. Therese of Lisieux.  She is the one I chose for my Patron Saint when I joined the Catholic Church.  
The very next day is the feast of the Guardian Angels.  My parish is under their patronage.
On October 4th, we celebrate the feast of the very beloved St. Francis of Assisi.  As you can imagine, I am really looking forward to that day's Mass on EWTN.
October 5th is the feast of St. Faustina.  I will be praying some extra Divine Mercy chaplets.
The week concludes with another beautiful feast: Our Lady of the Rosary.
