We're not Calvinists and don't believe that God only offers his grace to a select few. 

Well, actually...


In short, Thomas tells us that it's a mystery which finds reason only in the divine will.  No man comes to God without God moving him via grace.  Election comes from God alone, ultimately for His own reasons, unknowable to us.  The Second Council of Orange addresses this in further detail.
