Even your church teaches ONLY Jesus could live a sinless life

False.

so a bit contradiction in the doctrine it seems

There is no contradiction. Jesus lived a sinless life because He is God. Mary lived a sinless life through God's grace.

Had the Fall not occurred, Adam and Eve and their children would have led sinless lives as well.

Protestantism errs when it equates sinlessness with divinity. The classic example of this error is the response a Protestant on the Internet once gave to the Catholic dogma of Mary's sinlessness, "Of course she sinned! She's only human" ... thus making sin the measure of what makes someone human! Sin never made anyone human; humans weren't made to sin. Sin only makes us less human and more animal.

578 Jesus, Israel's Messiah and therefore the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, was to fulfill the Law by keeping it in its all embracing detail - according to his own words, down to "the least of these commandments".330 He is in fact the only one who could keep it perfectly.331

Mary gave Jesus His HUMAN nature, not His divine nature.. One is not a sinner because He sins, he sins because he is a sinner by nature, that was Adams legacy to his seed. Jesus did not need a perfect,sinless mother, He came into this world to live the life of man, with all its sins and hardships..and that would include a mom that needed a savior . Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

1Jo 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

1Jo 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

At no time did scripture make an exception for Mary
