Healing Mass on TV every day for people of all faiths?

A few weeks after my letter (“Reader writes: Healing Mass delivers miracle”) appeared on the Inquirer’s Letters page on March 20, 2014, a Healing Eucharist Mass was held during the ABS-CBN “Umagang Kay Ganda” or “UKG” program on a Monday morning, April 14, 2014. And this gave me a thought: A Healing Eucharistic Mass shown live nationwide, on ordinary days, on an ABS-CBN morning program to give those in their respective residences the chance to participate in it, whatever their faith. Why not? I believe this Healing Eucharist of the Society of the Divine Word fathers is not exclusive to Catholics but is intended for all who are sick and who believe in God and in His gift of eternal life.
