Today the 3rd of July is the birthday of Father James Bharataputra. As he clocks his 80th birthday and joins the coveted Octogenarian club we wish him a very happy birthday and may the Good Lord bless him with a healthy and high spirited long life.
We thank God for giving you knowledge and wisdom of understanding. You are an exemplary and visionary church leader who has dedicated your life towards the Catholic church and has positively impacted the lives of thousands of devotees of our Blessed Mother in Indonesia, India, Malaysia and Singapore.
Your sermon, conduct, and faith are few of the things that inspired us in so many ways. You have shown good examples to all of us in your extraordinary ministry. You are a blessing not only to us but to the coming generations.
Sir, as you mark your 80th birthday, we also pray may God’s blessings, glory, and grace be upon you. Have a great and wonderful birthday!
” The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor,
especially those whose work is preaching and teaching ” (1 Timothy 5:17)
