How to use "More venerated" in context?

Dismayed by news of a pope's homosexual orientation, the conservative wing of the Roman Catholic Church deliberated for months about whether or not to break ties with the Church. Ultimately, a Vatican investigation found the pope guilty and he resigned in February 2013.

Many Catholics believed that his resignation was more a result of the Vatican's insistence on forcing him out than any scandal surrounding his sexuality. Regardless of the pope's motives, his resignation has elevated the formerly obscure but more venerated cardinals to the forefront of the Church's hierarchy.
