I am very grateful for your reply, and apologize for not seeing it until just now.  I think St John's Gospel wouldn't very likely reflect St Paul's letters,  but John's letters might, if he was the author, although most of Paul's letters focused on specific church issues.  I think it is generally believed that John was writing more than 50 years after Paul, so common specific issues would probably diminish.

'We should not dispute stubbornly with anyone; rather we should patiently give our reasons with the purpose of declaring the truth lest our neighbor remain in error, and not that we should have the upper hand.'

After writing my last post, I was re-reading the first page opening of MWL, which I like very much, and it seems an amazing coincidence (or more) that the word destiny jumped out at me which I had obviously forgotten:
"The road that stretches before the feet of a (person) is a challenge to his heart long before it tests the strength of his legs.  Our destiny is to run to the edge of the world and beyond, off into the darkness; sure (despite) our blindness, secure despite our helplessness, strong despite our weakness, gaily in love despite the pressure on our hearts."
It seems God intends me to think more about this.  I thank Him, and also you for encouraging and motivating me.

I'm very sorry about my error in saying the book MWL could be found free on the web.  I hope I didn't cause you to waste a bunch of time looking for it.  I thought I saw it in videos, but I haven't actually done any audio books, it seems much more relaxing to sit with an open book and re-read whenever I want.
It puzzles me that my 1995 Catechism has no index reference to predestination, nor does the NAB Dictionary-Concordance.  Instead the Catechism has 23 references to freedom, and perhaps I prefer to believe that although God is omnipotent, with all power to predestine anything He choses, He does not seem to do it very often. I am aware that the Summa Theologica has four articles on the predestination of our Lord Jesus Christ.
