Didacus of Alcala was born about 1400 at San Nicolas in Andalusia.     
He entered the Third Order of St. Francis when he had scarcely reached young manhood.

Saint Didacus volunteered for the missions in the Canary Islands and labored there energetically and profitably.     
He was also the superior of a friary there.

On the island of Lanzarote, Didacus was assigned to the post of porter.   
In a monastery, the porter is the monk appointed to be the one who interacts with the public.

John Delaney's Dictionary of Saints says Didacus was noted for his healing power and miracles, but gives no details.
