My answer is a question: In the statement 'Many are called, but few are chosen', what do 'many' and 'few' mean? The Good Shepherd (Matthew 18:12-14) leaves the 99 sheep to find the one lost sheep.

We must distinguish between the two limbos: Limbo of hell or of the Patriarchs (limbus inferni seu patrum)This is also known as Abraham's bosom. This limbo no longer exists (cf.
