Why do some people receive the gift of faith and not others?
A Molinist accepts every Canon of Orange.  Molinism is a system of predestination.  St. Robert Bellarmine was a Molinist, for example.  I am not a Molinist, but I like using the system when debating to show how predestination and free will can work at the same time.  Think of it as the mechanics of predestination.  I'm more Augustinian, I believe.

Anyhow, if you asked St. Robert about predestination, the first thing he would say is that God predestined the elect for His own secret purpose according to His Divine Plan.  HOW this works is where they part from Thomists.
