Benedict: Take Joy in the Good of our Separated Brethren

On 1, the fact is Christians are divided. These theologians are attempting to understand the Church as united and holy while still being divided and unholy.

I think this is a key point. More people today are recognizing that the divisions amongst Christians are scandalous and that we need to work toward union. Of course, this is where an element of pride comes in. We naturally want to say that we are completely in the right and that "the Photian schismatics" or whoever else are all evil morons. If some of them ever see the truth and convert, fine, but we aren't going to go out of our way to end the schism. Charity and humility are difficult virtues to cultivate for all of us, I suppose.
