As with many things I would say intent is key.  If a Catholic cannot create a work that involves God acting differently, then fiction would be out of the question entirely - whether the author changes the method of creation (symbolically or otherwise) or changes how God allowed things to play out (say, whether or not the Allies won World War II), the way the Will of God has expressed itself in reality has been changed within the setting of said work.
