Why do some people receive the gift of faith and not others?

What a mystery the Catholic Church teaches!  Your god is so absolute in his sovereignty, that not even dwelling within the very Ark of Salvation can protect the unelect from the floodwaters of damnation!
Your way sounds like the double predestination or predestinarianism of Calvin.
