What Pope Benedict really said about Eucharistic adoration

I don't think that you mean to say that God in no sense chooses Popes.  They are Christ's representatives on earth.  The Jews were once the chosen people, but they could still deny Christ. God chose them but permitted them to turn against Him.  I think the same thing is true with Popes.  The Holy Ghost guides the Cardinals' election of a Pope.  It is not just a democratic election. But God still permits popes to sin, including - I think - against the faith.
