Can we extricate ourselves from Molinism?

Augustine and Thomas teach that evil comes from the will of man (or angels) and everyone is given sufficient grace for salvation, but only the elect receive efficacious grace.  In other words, in His omnipotence, God may efficaciously will the salvation of anyone, no matter how hardened in sin and disbelief, and that person will infallibly be saved.  The flipside is that, for whatever reasons unknown to us, God allows the reprobate to remain in their sin.


Frankly I've never heard this terminology before. Can you point me to other patristic sources that teach these concepts?
