Of course not. That's an important distinction. But it's clear that the Roman Missal uses the language of divine choice with respect to both Roman Pontiffs in general and at least St Pius V in particular (I've not bothered looking up others). Since Gerard made the astonishing claim that the words I quoted about "God's chosen Pontiffs" bordered on a violation of the First Commandment, I thought it worth noting that such language is... how best to put this?... traditional.

I'm just saying that if God willed the VII papacies, he probably didn't will them in the same way that he did SPV/X ...or perhaps for different reasons, if you know what I mean.
