To be honest, I think both Augustine and Thomas take things further.  I believe they say that no graces can be resisted.

Will you please quote your sources?

Perhaps.  To be honest, I'm writing an MA thesis paper on this topic at the moment and it's giving me quite a headache.  But, I don't think there's a huge distinction between election and grace in Thomas, both of which, in a rejection of any sort of Pelagianism or Molinism, come entirely from divine providence.

I'll see if I can dig up some specific quotations.
