The fact that a Cardinal sent a letter to these people, in the Popes Name, means something. The fact that he accepted them as Brothers in Christ, implied, means even more. An interseting letter.

Those who share Holy Baptism and a common faith - Catholicism - are brothers in Christ, even if their communion as brothers is rent by a schism between Anglia and Rome. Once we begin from this premise, much else is simpler to resolve.
