If the Decree Optatam Totius considers those in the licit hierarchical priesthood as "divinely chosen", how much more the Pope.

"The effective union of the whole people of God in fostering vocations is the proper response to the action of Divine Providence which confers the fitting gifts on those men divinely chosen to participate in the hierarchical priesthood of Christ and helps them by His grace." - (Decree - Optatam Totius - On Priestly Training # 2; n 3; Vatican II)
