How is Mary sinless?

Hello, I was wondering since I’m not catholic, How could Mary be sinless if in Luke 3:23-38 it describes Mary’s geanology back to Adam, who was the originator of Orginal Sin? and if Mary was Immaculately Conceived then why was there a need for Jesus if God could just make everybody Perfect Like Mary?:slight_smile:
