Below is an abstract of Dr. McCarthy’s presentation.

The doctrine of predestination is well-known among theologians (not the laity). It concerns a limited number of souls led infallibly to salvation. Some say we must hold together principles which “appear” to be irreconcilable and wait until the eschaton for the resolution. But the mystery of predestination has been revealed. Predestination is the “mystery” establishing a good creation, and a good (not inevitable) destiny for all men.
