>isn't this the ultimate goal of being a Christian, to become like Christ?

Sure. I think what we should be complaining about (rather than complain that there is too much legalism or doctrine) is that there is not enough asceticism, since that is sort of the first step.

That's a very "can you drink this chalice" kind of thing to want.

That you are here asking questions and help is a good thing. It shows that God is working in your life. You used to have a close relationship with God and you miss it.

Are you back in treatment for your depression? First get yourself back into treatment for your depression. I would check out Catholic Therapists so that you have someone that is respectful of your faith. You can also probably get a name of a good therapist from your Priest.

There are plenty of Saints that have fallen into the darkness of depression combined with spiritual aridity.

St. John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila and Mother Teresa of Calcutta come to mind.

A prayer by St. Teresa of Avila

Let nothing disturb you, Let nothing frighten you, All things are passing away: God never changes. Patience obtains all things Whoever has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices.

You are not praying wrong. You are rightly not chasing Divine Consolations. The earlier poster who quoted St. John of the Cross is correct.

I suggest to you the book
