Should we evangelize non-Catholics?

I once heard that St. Francis Xavier would grab fellow young men and complain that while they were in Europe loosing their time with nothing, people were loosing their souls all around the world due to the lack of missionaries and the absence of the True Faith.
How things have changed...

Not to mention Fr. Marie-Alphonse Ratisbonne and the literal downfall of his congregation.
As wikipedia says:
"Like the Fathers, the Sisters no longer emphasise conversion, but instead describe themselves as working to improve Catholic-Jewish relations and to witness to God's faithful love for the Jewish people."

I know it's wikipedia, but this happens to be the truth, unfortunatelly.

That sounds like the formula our priest that just was moved use to write his homilies, but would sub other groups for Jews.  Thank goodness that era has passed us by, but I'm not sure we will recover.
