Do You Think the Holy Ghost Chose Pope Benedict XVI....

God comes down from Heaven during every Mass, why not for a conclave? 

He comes down from Heaven (assuming you are referring to transubstantiation, but this could also refer to epliclesis I guess) because He promised so.

But why should he come for a conclave?  It's a matter of discernment.  We have had horrible popes.  Does the Holy Spirit directly intervene every time a bishop assigns a priest as pastor of a parish?
