I'm fairly sure he never said this about Ista. Iselle and the
Provincara, yes. And at the time, he was just making the point
that they couldn't be saints or communicate directly with a god.
He didn't say anything about them being unable to free Chalion
from the curse since he didn't know that it would take a saint to
do so.

I don't think Ista's will is all that sharp-edged.
