Benedict: Take Joy in the Good of our Separated Brethren

The pope isn't just saying God works good in or through heretics he's comparing this with the way God works through the True Church and saying this reflects his diversity, is good and we should work with them due to our deep communion and realise the Church's failings.

Baptism isn't deep and meaningful? I disagree. I also didn't see any "comparison" between the way God works in the Church as opposed to the world. He simply did not "compare" them. He mentioned the Truth that there is good outside of the Church. Nothing wrong with that, and much right with that.
